Chris Benoit’s father, Michael Benoit, spoke with iNews 880 AM yesterday on the sentencing of Dr. Phil Astin. Michael said, “Now, since the trial is over, perhaps that will be made available to us. Perhaps that will provide more insight to how the doctor was treating my son, whether or not he was doing the proper follow-up, and making sure that what he was prescribing was doing any good, or if my son just kept asking for it. I’m really not sure.” He went on to say that he has no doubt that his son suffered from a condition caused by trauma to the head and not steroid abuse, which kept him from thinking clearly.
As we reported earlier Dr. Phil Astin was sentenced to prison for 10 years for illegally distributing prescriptions drugs out of his Georgia clinic.
