Barry Bonds found guilty of one count of obstruction of justice
Barry Bonds, the former Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants slugger, has been found guilty of one count of obstruction of justice, but a jury of eight women and four men couldn't come to a verdict in regards to three other charges. The obstruction charge could carry a 15-21 months jail sentence, however, similar verdicts for other athletes involved with the long-time steroids case involving BALCO (Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative) have brought six months to a year of home confinement. Something similar should come to Bonds, who has constantly denied knowingly using performance-enhancing drugs. Speculation will always abound and Bonds will likely always be dogged by this situation. The next judgement will be for the Hall of Fame and it'll be interesting how the voting goes.
