Barry Bonds

30 Days House Arrest

For Lying About Steroids

12/16/2011 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1216_barry_bonds_getty_bnBarry Bonds has just been sentenced to 30 days of house arrest -- for lying to a grand jury during a 2003 federal investigation into steroid use by MLB players

Bonds was also sentenced to two years probation.

Bonds was found guilty in April of felony obstruction of justice after a jury found he lied during a 2003 federal investigation into the alleged steroid use. The jury deadlocked on three other charges against him.

Bonds won a record-setting seven MVP awards during his career. He was a 14-time All Star, 8-time Gold Glove winner, and holds the records for both most home runs in a season (73) and home runs in a career (762).

TMZ, NOT TRUE. He was found guilty of not answering a question about his trainer fast enough. It took more than 5 minutes for him to answer the question and the prosecutor thought that was too long. I guess when the Feds come to lock up your best friend you better flip quick or they'll get you too.

How much did they spend to convict this guy for 30 days, some one or a whole lot of people should be fired for wasting so much money on this.

It was quite pathetic to see Girardi & Keese's Thomas Girardi allowing Barry Bonds to make cynical use of his client Brian Stow.

What is with this "house arrest" crap? That is never a punishment, with the 3d TV's, Apple TV, cable, internet and music available in homes now, it is a vacation to lounge at home, veg, grab the doritos and watch movies and internet.

It is like these time outs that parents give sending their children to their room of toys. No punishment.

Why is the Grand Jury wasting tax payer money investigating this stuff anyway. Baseball, Football, etc have their own watch dogs. Who really cares if Bonds did or did not juice up. For all you Bond hater's I ask did Steroids help Bonds win 8 golden gloves? did steriods help his eye hand coordination? The real cheater in Baseball is Sammy Sosa, how many years did he use a corked bat? And while I'm at it, let Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame.

Another Judge bowing to celebrity. This entire trial, etc., has been nothing but a joke. A waste of taxpayer money. Why appeal, and waste more of our money? And steroid use will continue, because they all know they can use it, lie about it and get away with it!
