Roger Clemens Not Guilty On All Charges

Former major league pitcher Roger Clemens has been found not guilty on all charges in his federal perjury trial. NBC Sports:

Former major league pitcher Roger Clemens was found not guilty Monday on all charges of lying to Congress in 2008, the latest blow to the government’s prosecution of athletes for allegedly using performance-enhancing substances.

Jurors had resumed deliberations Monday morning after a four-day break.

Clemens, who won 354 games in the major leagues and was seemingly headed to a Hall of Fame induction, perhaps as early as next year, instead found himself on trial in federal court on perjury charges for allegedly lying about his use of illegal steroids or human-growth hormones.

This year’s trial was actually the second such event; a mistrial was declared last year because of supposed mistakes prosecutors made in presenting their case.

Clemens’ former trainer Brian McNamee and former teammate Andy Pettitte testified in the trial, and frankly, it was a mess — so dull that jurors were caught falling asleep during the proceedings.
