A former Texas trooper whose 2010 trial on drug-related charges ended in a mistrial has pleaded guilty in a steroids investigation.

Jeff Jerman pleaded guilty Monday in Kerrville to three counts of delivery of a controlled substance.

His November trial ended when a juror told Judge Rex Emerson that she believed, before hearing any evidence, that Jerman was guilty.

Defense attorney Alan Brown says Jerman will be sentenced March 11. Jerman faces up to two years behind bars and a fine of up to $10,000.

The Kerrville Daily Times reports Jerman admitted to selling $800 worth of steroids to an undercover police officer in September 2009.

DPS spokeswoman Tela Mange on Tuesday told The Associated Press
that Jerman is no longer employed by the agency. She declined further comment.
