Former All-Star pitcher Roger Clemens may be out of legal trouble if the federal government doesn't retry him on perjury charges, after a mistrial was declared last month.
But now, some other people involved in the Clemens trial may be in trouble.
Security guards at the federal courthouse in Washington are under investigation for accepting baseballs autographed by star pitcher Roger Clemens after his criminal trial.
The guards are not allowed to accept gifts from a criminal defendant. But the U.S. Marshals Service said in a statement, first reported Tuesday by The Washington Post, that it appears up to six baseballs were given to a guard who distributed them to four or five colleagues.
The mind boggles. The contractor that supplies security at the federal courthouse is investigating.
