Judge won’t allow ‘barely intelligible’ tape in Bonds case – CBSSports.com Baseball

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge has barred the jury in the Barry Bonds’ perjury trial from hearing a newly discovered tape recording prosecutors say bolsters their case that the slugger knowingly took steroids.

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston ruled the recording inadmissible because “it’s barely intelligible” and what can be heard is irrelevant.

The tape was a conversation between Bonds’ orthopedic surgeon Dr. Arthur Ting and his former business partner, Steve Hoskins. Hoskins secretly recorded the conversation in 2003.
