Barry Bonds Trial: Jury Voted 11-1 For Guilty Verdict On Perjury Charge

According to SB Nation Bay Area’s David Fucillo, there has been some explanation from some of the jurors in the Barry Bonds perjury trial:

On count two, which dealt with injections (of any substance) by anybody other than a Giants trainer or Bonds physicians, the jury voted 11-1 for a guilty verdict. The lone holdout felt that Kathy Hoskins was not sufficiently credible.

On count one the jury was voting 9-3 for acquittal. This count dealt with Bonds saying he wasn’t sure whether what he was taking was any kind of steroid. There’s no word on where the jury was as to count three.

There is no word as to whether the prosecution will seek to retry Bonds on the three counts that were declared a mistrial, though it’s possible that the lopsided (but not unanimous) jury vote on the second count might embolden such an effort.

The next hearing is scheduled for May 20.
