“Baseball great Roger Clemens faces re-trial April 16

Posted by Stewart Powell

The retrial of legendary baseball pitcher Roger Clemens on federal perjury charges begins April 16.

Federal trial Judge Reggie Walton set the schedule for Clemens’ retrial today.

Walton summoned lawyers on both sides to a so-called motions hearing on April 13 to hear prosecutors and defense lawyers argue various pre-trial motions in the high-profile case.

Clemens stands accused of six counts of making false statements to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs during his sworn public testimony in February 2008.

His initial trial ended in a mistrial last July 14 after prosecutors displayed evidence to the jury that the judge had ruled inadmissible.

Clemens, a baseball star in high school and college in Texas, went on to become a seven-time Cy Young Award winner in major league baseball during a 23-year career with four teams that included playing for the Houston Astros from 2004 through 2006.”
