BREAKING: Verdict Reached in Roger Clemens Perjury Trial
He’s one of the best to ever pitch a baseball, now after ten weeks of testimonies a verdict in the Roger Clemens perjury trial has been reached.
The Washington Post reports,
The baseball legend was charged with six counts of perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress for denying in 2008 that he had ever taken steroids or human growth hormone. A House panel was following up on a 2007 report by former senator George Mitchell that connected dozens of ballplayers, including Clemens, to performance-enhancing drugs.
So, for the past ten weeks jurors listened to testimony from more than 40 witnesses, including former major league ballplayers and Clemen’s wife. After all the evidence and stories were shared and more than 10 hours of deliberation Roger Clemens has been found not guilty of all charges in the government’s perjury case against him.
Wow. That was money well spent, now the government can focus fully on Lance Armstrong, let’s get him guys! — But seriously, isn’t there something more important y’all could spend your time and our money on?
