New trial set for Roger Clemens

U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton on Friday granted federal prosecutors a new trial for former Major League pitcher Roger Clemens.

A starting date was set for April 17.

The case against Clemens, accused of one count of obstruction of Congress, three counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury, was declared a mistrial in July after evidence ruled inadmissible was shown in court.

      @Spaulding – 100% Agreed – Pete Rose should have been inducted after he came clean. Regardless of his gambling, "Charlie Hustle" broke Ty Cobb's record, fair and square, 09/11/1985, without the use of steroids !!

    More crap to burden the taxpayers with. This is minor stuff, compared with all the REAL stuff that's going on in this country today. Does the law care? Nope. . . your tax dollars at work, basically to give the prosecutors recognition and fame.

    The DNA evidence is non admissible by any kangaroo court's standards. This judge (lol) is just trying to get his highlight reel together for his future campaigns..
