No Plea Deal for Barry Bonds – waiting for a verdict!

According to ESPN in San Francisco, Barry Bonds’ defense team rested its case Wednesday without calling a single witness and just minutes after a federal judge accepted the government’s request to dismiss one of the five counts (weak evidence). Before the trial, there were rumors the government would be offering Bonds a plea deal. Back in February, the federal judge presiding over the case requested prosecutors and the defense consider a plea bargain. That would seem to indicate the state’s overall case was weak and difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. In the end, there was no plea deal for Barry Bonds and so he went to trial.

Closing arguments were Thursday and the reviews of journalists and bloggers have been mixed. Some say the prosecutors owned the courtroom; others say the defense stole the show. The jury is out. If Bonds is convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison on each count. However, federal guidelines suggest a total sentence of 15 to 21 months.
