And we have a resolution to the Barry Bonds trial, of sorts. After a confusing Wednesday afternoon in which we were told that a verdict had been reached, and then that a verdict had not been reached, it turned out that a partial verdict was reached, and the jury has found Bonds guilty of obstruction of justice.
In other words, Bonds was found guilty on count 5, while the jury was split on the others - those being the perjury counts. Bonds reportedly had a stoic response, and the jury was released back into the wild.
It's not yet clear what punishment Bonds will face, although Judge Illston has ordered house arrest in similar cases in the past. It's also not yet clear whether the prosecution will attempt to retry the case.
The defense is fighting the verdict, saying that Bonds was simply found guilty of rambling. The next hearing will be on May 20.
