Former major league pitcher Roger Clemens was acquitted Monday by a federal jury on all six counts of perjury.

The jury provided the verdict after a 10-week trial and more than 10 hours of deliberation.

Clemens was accused of making false statements to Congress in 2008 when he denied using steroids and human growth hormone during his 24-season major league career.

The government’s top witness was Clemens’ former personal trainer Brian McNamee, who claimed to have injected the former all-star pitcher with human growth hormone.

Clemens won 354 games in his career that included stints with the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Houston Astros. His 4,672 strikeouts rank third on Major League Baseball’s all-time list.

He is a seven-time Cy Young Award winner.
