Barry Bonds Found Guilty in Steroids Trial

by at . Comments

All-time home run leader Barry Bonds and his enormous head were convicted in a Los Angeles courtroom today of obstruction of justice, as it was determined he lied to a grand jury about using steroids and human growth hormone.

The former San Franciso Giants star revealed no emotion after the verdict, which followed four days of deliberation. The jury was deadlocked on a trio of other charges.

A Guilty Slugger

The case stemmed from a testimony Bonds gave in 2003, during which he denied knowledge of ever receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a Bay Area lab and claimed he had no idea that personal trainer Greg Anderson injected him with anything illegal.

Major League Baseball's Mitchell Report, however, listed over 100 names of individuals who had failed drugs tests. Bonds was among them.

Federal sentencing guidelines now recommend he serve 15 to 21 months in prison, but the disgraced slugger will likely be related to home confinement instead.

Why the hell is the Grand Jury wasteing time with a baseball player. HE IS A BASEBALL PLAYER. Why is it that the Federal Grand Jury is not concerned with Political Corruption? Why is there no Grand jury investigation in regards to California Judges taking bribes? Not only are the Judges taking bribes but when they were exposed for taking bribes they had Polititions pass Senate bill SBX211 grating them RETRO ACTIVE IMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION for taking the bribes. Los Angeles Superior Court judges are currently getting $57,688.00 per year per judge on top of the pay and benefits they allready receive from the state. This additional money/bribes were declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL and therefor illegal under (Sturgeon v Los Angeles County) right after that decission they paid a lobbyiest to pass SBX211. Everything about SBX211 is not only illegal but also unconstitutional. (SEE) How To Disqaulify Your Judge
