Barry Bonds guilty of obstruction; jury hung on other counts
SAN FRANCISCO, CA Following a 12-day trial and almost four full days of deliberation, a jury could not reach a unanimous vote on three of four counts, a messy end to a case that put the slugger in the spotlight for more than three years. Bonds sat stone-faced through the verdict, displaying no emotion. The case also represented the culmination of the federal investigation into the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative steroids ring. Federal prosecutors and the Justice Department will have to decide whether to retry Bonds on the unresolved counts.
