    Indictment looms for Bonds

    Sources say it could be within 2 weeks.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

    Several baseball sources believe San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds will be indicted in the next two weeks, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.

    The newspaper said that the U.S. Attorney's office in San Francisco is considering whether to seek an indictment against Bonds, possibly next week, for perjury and tax evasion.

    A grand jury, which has been hearing evidence, is due to expire within the next two weeks, the Daily News added. Attorneys told the newspaper that generally when a grand jury the end of its term, a prosecutor will seek an indictment.

    The grand jury will convene in San Francisco on one of the next upcoming Thursdays and might be asked to consider the evidence against Bonds, the Daily News said. Then, at least 12 of the 23 grand jury members must agree that there is "probable cause" that a crime was committed and that Bonds did it.

    The grand jury would indict, or not indict, Bonds, or else the U.S. attorney could decide not to seek an indictment at that point or request from a judge an extension to continue the grand jury, the Daily News said.

    The Daily News said that among those testifying to the grand jury have included former Bonds physician Arthur Ting, San Francisco Giants trainer Stan Conte (no relation to BALCO founder Victor Conte), and Bonds' former girlfriend Kimberly Bell.

    The Daily News said that Bell reportedly told the grand jury that Bonds gave her about $80,000 and told her he used steroids before meeting BALCO officials.

    Bonds told a grand jury in December 2003 that he did not knowingly take performance-enhancing drugs.

    The grand jury would indict, or not indict, Bonds, or else the U.S. attorney could decide not to seek an indictment at that point or request from a judge an extension to continue the grand jury, the Daily News said.
    If the extension is granted, would Greg Anderson have to remain in prison on the contempt charges?

    He has already been indicted and sentenced in the court of public opinion.

    That is all that matters to me.

    A talented ballplayer who probably would have been HOF bound regardless. But his ego and greed said it wasn't enough.

    USDAs do not indicte when they can't win. This is a big deal, although there's a ways to go.

    I wonder if they'd be willing to drop the charges if he retired. A strange deal, but it would pretty much make everyone happy.

    many, many indictments are handed down when the government can't win.
