Barry Bonds Found Guilty of Obstruction of Justice

The Associated Press (via ESPN.com) has reported that former Major League Baseball player Barry Bonds was found by a jury to be guilty of obstruction of justice in connection with the federal government investigation of illegal performance-enhancing drugs.  A mistrial was declared for the three counts of perjury with which Bonds was charged.  The AP article states, in part, as follows:

Following a 12-day trial and almost four full days of deliberation, the jury of eight women and four men could reach a unanimous verdict only on one of the four counts against Bonds. U.S. District Judge Susan Illston declared a mistrial on the others, a messy end to a case that put the slugger — and baseball itself — under a cloud of suspicion for more than three years.
