Again, it doesn't make him guilty, but I generally find the defense weak.
Bonds wasn't actually convicted of perjury based upon the testimony of others. The only thing the federal government was able to win was one count where they argued that he answered a question by giving a response that was too long therefore he was trying to be misleading.
The Bonds trial was a huge egg on the face of those who wanted jurisprudence to punish PEDs users.
