New Indictment Against Slugger Barry Bonds Unsealed

Federal prosecutors have filed a new indictment against Barry Bonds, charging the home run king with 14 counts of lying to a grand jury and one count of obstruction when he denied knowingly using performance-enhancing drugs.

Bonds originally was charged with four counts of perjury and one
count of obstruction of justice last Nov. 15, but U.S. District
Judge Susan Illston ordered prosecutors on Feb. 29 to rework the
indictment so that each charge alleged only one lie rather than
lumping several alleged falsehoods into single counts.

The new indictment doesn't add any new alleged falsehoods.

The case against Bonds is still built on whether he lied when he
told the grand jury that his personal trainer Greg Anderson never
supplied him with steroids and human growth hormone.

    I think they should take away his award for passing Hank Aaron. The only way he did it was by using steroids. Everyone knows that. I also think someone should have to beat the time frame in which these old baseball stars did theirs in. These new guys might get the same amount of runs , but did they do it in lesser games than the ones they where suppose to beat. Think about it!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh no not Berry the super star, the greatest. So go ahead and slap him on the wrist and get it over with. Who cares? Maybe he can retire to Florida and keep Strayberry company.
