Government Might Be Given More Leeway in Clemens Trial
The judge in the Roger Clemens perjury trial may be on the verge of letting the government show the former pitcher's largely baseball-ignorant jury just how widespread steroids and human growth hormone were in the sport.
The move is one that Clemens' lawyers would like to avoid, but may have brought on themselves.
Clemens is on trial for allegedly lying in a 2008 congressional deposition and hearing when he said he never used steroids or HGH.
U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said Monday that if the Clemens defense team continues its attack on the congressional hearing, government prosecutors should be allowed to present a "larger picture" of why the hearing took place.
