The judge has declared a mistrial in the Roger Clemens perjury case, the Associated Press reports.
U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton in Washington said Clemens could not be assured a fair trial after prosecutors showed jurors evidence against his orders in the second day of testimony.
Walton scheduled a Sept. 2 hearing to determine whether to hold a new trial.
|Gunna be a long year Roger|
Dude can this shit just end? I mean for fuck's sake. Roger Clemens is already a disgrace to baseball. his image is tarnished. Why do the courts have to get their pound of flesh? This fucking thing is never going to end now. Just slap him on the wrists and lets fucking move along. I doubt anyone really cares about this case anyway besides the lawyers. Roger is probably ready to jump off a cliff thinking that this thing could go another year or longer. Why kick him while he's down?
