• Bonds' conviction from PED testimony upheld

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Sep 13, 2013
    Former Giants slugger Barry Bonds' federal obstruction-of-justice conviction was upheld by an appeals court on Friday. In December 2011, Bonds appealed his conviction after being sentenced to two years' probation, 30 days' house arrest and receiving a $4,000 fine. Bonds could face punishment for this felony obstruction charge, which relates back to his trainer Greg Anderson and whether Anderson had ever injected Bonds with illegal substances. Major League Baseball's all-time career home run leader was convicted of the charge in April 2011, when a jury determined that his 2003 testimony to a grand jury, during which he denied knowingly using steroids provided by BALCO, was evasive and misleading. Schroeder, in her written explanation on behalf of the three-judge appeals panel, rejected that premise, saying that the answer was unrelated to the question and therefore prevented the jury from "obtaining truthful and responsive answers."
