Baseball Great and Seven Time Cy Young Award Winner Roger Clemens Found Not Guilty of Perjury

ROGER CLEMENS … NOT GUILTY … FEDS STRIKE OUT!!!

Major League Baseball great and seven time Cy Young award winner Roger Clemens has been found not guilty  and acquitted on two counts of perjury, obstruction of Congress and three counts of making false statements to Congress in connection with alleged steroid use. GOOD, the case never should have been tried in the first place!!! Following the not guilty jury verdict Clemens thanked his family, lawyers and others who have supported him during the trial where he was accused of using illicit performance enhancing drugs. In the end the jury did not believe the US attorneys made their case, not did they believe Clemens’ former personal trainer, Brian McNamee, who the Defense stated had incentive to lie.

Legendary baseball pitcher Roger Clemens was found not guilty Monday of lying to Congress during an investigation of steroid use among major league players.

The case against Clemens involved one count of obstruction of Congress, three counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury. He was not charged with illicit use of performance-enhancing drugs, but his denial of such use was part of the case against him.

A federal jury found him not guilty on all six counts.
