    Dec. 21: Former San Francisco Giants Barry Bonds leaves the Philip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco, after responding to government concerns that his high powered legal team may have conflicts of interest because they have represented other figures in the Balco steroids scandal.
    Dec. 21: Former San Francisco Giants Barry Bonds leaves the Philip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco, after responding to government concerns that his high powered legal team may have conflicts of interest because they have represented other figures in the Balco steroids scandal.




    SAN FRANCISCO Former San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds was charged Tuesday with 14 counts of perjury and one count obstruction of justice in a new indictment filed by federal prosecutors, KTVU.com reported.
    The indictment revises prosecutors' earlier indictment, which stemmed from the 43-year-old's testimony in the BALCO steroids case. The new charges cite Bonds for each allegedly false statement he made while testifying before the grand jury, according to the station.
    U.S. District Judge Susan Illston had told prosecutors on Feb. 29 to fix their original indictment because it lumped multiple allegations into too few counts. Illston said that prosecutors needed to drop some of the allegations from the indictment or add more charges.
    Bonds was indicted in November on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice, charges stemming from 2003 grand-jury testimony in which he denied knowingly taking illegal performance-enhancing drugs.
    He was let go by the San Francisco Giants and remains a free agent. Bonds has said he wants to play this year.
    A hearing on the charges is scheduled for June 6, the station reported.

    I remember thinking the same thing when I first saw Vick's federal indictment.

    Barry was framed! He is not guilty, it is all just a plan by the man to keep a brotha down!

    You know what I have a problem with in this whole thing? How is this the governments problem? Have we solved all other crimes in the US, now we have to go after roiders? So all those catholic priests and child molesters are behind bars and we have no other issues?

    As soon as I saw this thread I was wondering where your wild allegations were.

    If you lie to a grand jury, you'll become the government's problem too.

    But I assume you mean why does the government care about what goes on in baseball? I believe it's because of the anti-trust laws.

    I believe it's because until recently, baseball didn't care what went on in baseball. As long as there was no crying.

    Nothing will happen to him. It's the same story over and over and over again.

    Just like nothing happened to Michael Vick and Wesley Snipes.

    Unless Bond's trainer finally decides to deliver testimony against him, I don't see how the feds can win.
