Barry Bonds case: Feds considering U.S. Supreme Court appeal

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, April 29, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO -- The U.S. Justice Department is seriously considering asking the U.S. Supreme Court to restore home run king Barry Bonds' obstruction of justice conviction, according to court papers filed on Tuesday.

San Francisco U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag urged the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to hold off on finalizing last week's ruling overturning Bonds' 2011 felony conviction to give prosecutors time to decide whether to appeal to the Supreme Court. The government has until July 22 to ask the high court to intervene, prosecutors said in court papers.

In a 10-1 ruling, the 9th Circuit wiped out what was left of the long-running prosecution of the former San Francisco Giant, concluding there was insufficient evidence to back up the charge that his rambling testimony interfered with a federal grand jury probing the BALCO steroids scandal more than a decade ago.
