Jurors returned their verdict Monday after close to 10 hours of
deliberation. The outcome brings an end to a 10-week trial that
capped an expensive, five-year investigation into one of the
greatest pitchers in the history of baseball.
The 49-year-old Clemens was accused of perjury, making false
statements and obstructing Congress when he testified at a
deposition and at a nationally-televised hearing in February 2008.
The charges centered on his repeated denials that he used steroids
and human growth hormone during his 24-year career.
The verdict is the latest blow to the government's pursuit of
athletes accused of drug use.
