Roger Clemens found not guilty in perjury trial6/18/2012
Former major league pitcher Roger Clemens was found not guilty today on all counts by a jury in federal court in Washington, D.C. It was the second trial for the legendary pitcher, who was charged with six counts of perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress. In 2008, Clemens denied to Congress ever having taken performance enhancing drugs, despite testimony from his former strength coach that he had injected Clemens with banned substances. The seven-week trial featured more than 40 witnesses, including Clemens' wife, a housekeeper and former major league players. Much of the trial hinged on the testimony of Brian McNamee, the former strength coach, who told Congress that he had injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone on several occasions.
