Jury Selected in Bonds Perjury Trial
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A jury has been selected in the Barry Bonds perjury trial.
After more than five hours of questioning Monday, prosecutors and Bonds’ lawyers agreed on 12 jurors and two alternates from a pool of around 100 prospective jurors.
Bonds played for the San Francisco Giants when he hit 73 homers in a season and when he broke Hank Aaron’s career home-run record. He hasn’t played since 2007, the year he was indicted.
Bonds has pleaded not guilty to one count of obstruction and four charges of lying to a grand jury when he said he never knowingly took performance-enhancing drugs.
The jury includes four men and eight women.
