Roger Clemens Perjury Trial Begins

WASHINGTON – Roger Clemens’s day in court begins Wednesday, July 6, as he fights allegations that he lied under oath to Congress when he denied ever using steriods during his 23-year baseball career as a MLB pitcher.

Clemens testified to a House committee under oath in 2008 that he never used any performance-enhancing drugs during his 23-season baseball career.

The case stems from Clemens word against against the word of his former trainer, Brian McNamee, who says he injected Clemens with steroids and human growth hormone several times during the decade and that he helped shape Clemens into one of the most feared pitchers in the major leagues.

Clemens’ attorneys say McNamee is a serial liar who made up the allegations against his star client to save himself from joblessness and prosecution on drug charges.

Clemens is charged with six felony counts, including perjury, false statements and obstruction of Congress, which carry a maximum sentence of up to 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine.
