Barry Bonds' Conviction Upheld

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal appeals court on Friday upheld former Giants slugger Barry Bonds' obstruction of justice conviction stemming from rambling testimony he gave during a 2003 appearance before a grand jury investigating performance-enhancing drug use among elite athletes.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Bonds' testimony was "evasive'' and capable of misleading investigators and hindering their probe into a performance enhancing drug ring centered at the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, better known as BALCO.

.......

If Bonds' conviction stands, he will have to serve the 30 days of house arrest and two years of probation he was sentenced to after his 2011 trial. Prosecutors had sought a 15-month prison sentence.

There was no dissenting opinion issued. Bonds now must accept the court's ruling or exhaust his final avenue of appeal which would be the the US Supreme Court.

this may hurt his chances for the HOF invitation I fear...
