Barry Bonds asks for reconsideration of conviction

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Major League Baseball's all-time home run leader has asked a federal appeals court to reconsider its refusal to overturn his felony obstruction conviction.

 

Barry Bonds' legal team filed the request Monday with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit upheld Bonds' conviction in September. A jury found him guilty in April 2011. Bonds is asking the court to assemble a special panel of 11 judges to rehear the case.

 

Bonds argues that he was wrongfully convicted of obstruction of justice for giving a rambling but truthful answer during a 2003 grand jury appearance.

 

Bonds was asked whether his trainer had injected him with a substance, and he replied by discussing the difficulties of being the son of a famous father.
