Barry Bonds Indicted on Perjury Charges
Well, Barry Bonds just can't seem to get himself out the news. This time not for his hitting ability. Today a federal grand jury indicted Barry Bonds on perjury charges and obstruction of justice. They also accused him of testing positive for performance-enhancing steroids.

"During the criminal investigation, evidence was obtained including positive tests for the presence of anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing substances for Bonds and other professional athletes," the indictment said.

Perjury convictions carry possible prison terms of up to five years, while obstruction of justice can bring a 10-year sentence.
