Armstrong will not be prosecuted for doping - U.S. official [View all]

Source: Reuters

(Reuters) - Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong's public admission that he took performance-enhancing drugs will not change U.S. prosecutors' decision to spare him of criminal charges, an attorney who oversaw the federal investigation said on Tuesday.

The statement by André Birotte, the U.S. attorney based in Los Angeles, follows Armstrong's confession in a televised interview last month.

"We made a decision on that case a little over a year ago. Obviously, we've been well aware of the statements that have been made by Mr. Armstrong in other media reports. That does not change my view at this time," Birotte said at a news conference in Washington to announce an unrelated lawsuit against Standard & Poor's.

The government will continue to look at the case, Birotte added, but Armstrong's admission "hasn't changed our view as I stand here today."
