Roger Clemens Found Not Guilty
Following a four day break, the jury in the Roger Clemens trial has finally reached a verdict: not guilty on all six counts.
Clemens had been on trial for allegedly lying to congress about using performance enhancing drugs during his baseball career. Clemens testified that he had never used any steroids, while his former trainer with the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees, Brian McNamee, claimed that he had personally injected the Super Star with PEDs numerous times.
This was the second attempt made by the Government to convict Roger Clemens; the first ended in a mistrial in the summer of 2011.
Clemens is eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame next year, with popular speculation being that the suspicion of steroid abuse will prevent him from being selected.
