Barry Bonds has been through the ringer with this obstruction of justice charge he was eventually charged with. Personally I wish the government in the US would spend their money on more important things, other than Bonds possibly lying about steroid use. Does anyone really care? Is it going to keep us safer at night now that Bonds is convicted? I think not, how ever I do think it has been a complete waste of money that the US does not seem to have.
Barry Bonds attorneys have filed a motion to have his obstruction of justice conviction reduced to an acquittal or schedule a new trial. A hearing is scheduled on July 1st to review the motion. Personally I am hoping for an acquittal.
