The Bonds verdict is in. The eight-woman, four-man jury convicted Barry Bonds of obstructing justice for false statements to the grand jury but deadlocked on three perjury counts against him. When asked by the Judge if there was any chance that the jury could spend more time in deliberations on the three perjury counts, the jury foreman replied no. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston then declared a mistrial on the three charges that Bonds made false statements when he told the grand jury in December 2003 that he never knowingly received steroids and human growth hormone from trainer Greg Anderson and that he allowed only doctors to inject him.
