According to a press release by the U.S. Department of Justice, Pasternak was the ringleader of “one of the largest clandestine steroids lab in the United States” and was sentenced to nine years in federal prison and a $2.8 million fine. Here’s how the lab scheme reportedly worked:

Their scheme involved importing raw steroid powders shipped in misbranded packaging from China and other countries, which were converted to liquid, pill, and tablet form and marketed via the internet using the Incredible Hulk image and the name Hulkbody. Customers purchased the steroid products by sending money to Western Union, MoneyGram, and Walmart-to-Walmart Money Transfer using false identities. Over a three-year period, the Pasternak drug organization operated five different clandestine steroids labs in the Johnson City area, derived more than $2.8 million in criminal proceeds, engaged in thousands of sales transactions, and involved a total of 22 co-conspirators.

Pasternak is just the latest gay porn star to be arrested for drug charges.
