The jury deadlocked on the remaining charges -- which included lying to a grand jury when he denied knowingly taking steroids -- and the judge ultimately declared a mistrial.

Bonds faces a maximum 10 years in federal prison for the obstruction of justice conviction.

The prosecution has not announced whether it intends to re-file the deadlocked charges against Bonds.

Duh... Next to O.J. this swollen head freak is probably the second most obviously guilty athlete in history. Lock him, Clemens, Big Mac, A-Roid, Mr extreme fade cream Sosa and the rest of them all up.

He was convicted on ONLY one count and it was NOT using steroids.

Fact he was not convicted of using steroids or lying about using steroids. He was only convicted of obstruction of justice.

So NOBODY has still NOT proven that he used steroids.

Why the hell is the Grand Jury wasteing time with a baseball player. HE IS A BASEBALL PLAYER. Why is it that the Federal Grand Jury is not concerned with Political Corruption? Why is there no Grand jury investigation in regards to California Judges taking bribes? Not only are the Judges taking bribes but when they were exposed for taking bribes they had Polititions pass Senate bill SBX211 grating them RETRO ACTIVE IMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION for taking the bribes. Los Angeles Superior Court judges are currently getting $57,688.00 per year per judge on top of the pay and benefits they allready receive from the state. This additional money/bribes were declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL and therefor illegal under (Sturgeon v Los Angeles County) right after that decission they paid a lobbyiest to pass SBX211. Everything about Sbx211 is not only illegal but also unconstitutional. (SEE) How To Disqaulify Your Judge

derrick    

it only relates to the statement that Bonds said he was quote "a child of a celebrity ball player..." The government claimed it was rambling and evasive and that is all he was convicted on. That statement.

not lying about using steroids. So all those claiming he's guilty of steroids DO NOT understand the law or the verdict.

and absolute waste of taxpayer money.
