Bonds jury reviews Hoskins’ testimony – News

By�John Schlegel�/�

SAN FRANCISCO — The jury in the federal trial of Barry Bonds was back in the courtroom to begin its second day of deliberations Monday, but when the jurors will be back there to deliver a verdict remains to be seen.

After going out for deliberations Friday, the eight women and four men reported back to Judge Susan Illston’s courtroom first thing Monday morning, hearing a re-reading of the riveting testimony former personal shopper Kathy Hoskins provided during the trial. The reading was conducted by the court stenographer and lasted about an hour and 15 minutes.

What was missing from Monday’s re-reading was the emotion Hoskins, the sister of fellow childhood friend and prosecution witness Steve Hoskins, displayed in giving her testimony — smiling when talking about taking Bonds to the Sadie Hawkins dance when she was a freshman in high school, showing anger and tears when talking about how her brother “threw me under the bus” getting her involved in the case in the first place.

What was there, however, was Hoskins’ account of seeing trainer Greg Anderson inject Bonds in the abdomen, where human growth hormone is typically administered. “Greg shot him in the belly button,” Hoskins said, adding that Bonds said it was “a little something-something for before I go on the road. You can’t detect it. You can’t catch it.”
