Barry Bonds Found Guilty of Obstruction of Justice


April 13, 2011

The verdict is finally in for Barry Bonds.

According to, the former slugger was found guilty for obstruction of justice in his case. In addition to the guilty ruling for obstruction of justice, the defense and prosecution agreed to a mistrial on the other three counts of perjury.

The ESPN report states that "The guilty verdict on obstruction of justice means the jury believed Bonds hindered a grand jury's 2003 sports doping investigation by lying."

Mark Fainaru-Wada, who co-authored the book "Game of Shadows," which detailed Bonds' alleged performance-enhancing drug use, tweeted shortly after the ruling that Bonds and his family's reaction was "stoic" and "silent."

Bonds was charged with three counts of lying to a grand jury and obstruction of justice following his December 2003 testimony in the BALCO steroids case.
