Bonds found guilty of obstruction of justice | MLB.com: News

SAN FRANCISCO — The jury deciding the federal perjury case against Barry Bonds found him guilty of obstruction of justice on Wednesday, but it could not come to a conclusion on the three counts of making false declarations regarding his 2003 testimony before the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) grand jury.

With that, Judge Susan Illston excused the jurors, and then declared a mistrial on the three charges that the jury couldn’t decide upon. A sentencing date of May 20 was set by Illston.

Defense counsel moved for a directed verdict to dismiss the remaining charge or a new trial. The two sides will set a date to discuss that with Illston.
