Barry Bonds indicted for lying under oath

Baseball star Barry Bonds have been indicted for obstruction of justice and perjury for allegedly lying to grand jury.

Barry Bonds indicted for lying under oath The long-rumored indictment of Barry Bonds is now a fact and was unsealed today (Thursday) in San Francisco. Bonds is being charged with perjury and obstruction of justice for allegedly lying to the grand jury in the BALCO case by testifying that he unknowingly used steroids. The case was investigating top athletes for use of the steroid known as "the clear". During his testimony, Barry Bonds said that he had no idea he was given steroids by his personal trainer Greg Anderson. He also denied taking any performance-enhancing drugs during 2001, while he was chasing the single season home-run record.

"I'm curious what evidence they have now they didn't have before," a lawyer of Bonds was quoted saying about the indictment, who was surprised to hear about the new case against the baseball superstar.
