PJ Braun Released From Prison

PJ Braun’s lease from prison comes two years after he was sentenced. On Feb. 17, 2022, Braun was given 54 months in prison after being convicted of selling illegal anabolic steroids and other unlawful controlled substances marketed as dietary supplements, along with Aaron Singerman. During the case, both defendants pleaded guilty.

In addition to the 54 months in prison, PJ Braun also had to forfeit $3 million alongside Blackstone Labs forfeiting $1.2 million. Despite these events, Braun seems to remain confident that Blackstone Labs will continue to not only stay stable but grow during his absence.

On the day of his sentencing, PJ Braun shared a video on social media explaining his actions and the court sentencing in the video. He claimed that the two illegal substance Blackstone Labs sold were a pro hormone and SARMs. He also claims that neither he nor Aaron Singerman were aware that they should not be selling them.

Aaron Singerman was released from prison in December 2022 after serving just months of a 60-month sentence. In November 2021, Singerman came to a plea deal on the charges after pleading guilty.

Reports indicated that Aaron Singerman had pleaded guilty as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. Singerman and Braun pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute substances and to selling unapproved new drugs. Blackstone Labs LLC had also pleaded guilty to these same charge as well as one count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and to committing mail and wire fraud.

Blackstone Labs has shared that PJ Braun is now out of prison and many fans have already started celebrating the newswith the brand.
