Roger Clemens INDICTED!!! Federal Perjury Charges Could Land Pitcher In The Pen For Lying About Steroids

- By Bossip Staff

Baseball is taking another mighty hit… Roger Clemens is the latest MLB legend to fall from grace, and this time it’s not for using steroid and HGH use — it’s for allegedly lying about not using them!

Former Yankee pitching ace Roger Clemens was indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury on charges of lying at a congressional hearing about his alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs — and he now faces 30 years in prison.

The seven-time Cy Young Award winner — once a lock to make the Baseball Hall of Fame — was charged with one count of obstruction of Congress, three counts of making false statements, and two counts of perjury in connection with his February 2008 testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

After taking an oath and swearing to tell the truth, the flame-throwing righthander denied using steroids or growth hormones, despite conflicting testimony from his longtime trainer, Brian McNamee, and his teammate and close friend, Andy Pettitte.

“The Department of Justice takes referrals from congressional committees very seriously,” said US Attorney Ronald Machen, who is prosecuting the case in Washington.

“Our government cannot function if witnesses are not held accountable for false statements made before Congress. Today the message is clear: If a witness makes a choice to ignore his or her obligation to testify honestly, there will be consequences.”

If convicted of all charges, Clemens, 48, faces a combined maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine.

    Being a Houstonion,I’ve always tried to support our sports teams and athletes.Saying that,I have no sympathy for Clemens. When all of this came out, He had the chance to go ahead and come clean, like Andy Pettitte did; but he lied then and continues to lie now. We were disappointed in Andy but he is still highly respected here, because even though he cheated, when he got caught,he OWNED IT. People like Roger need to learn that if their image is not real, it will always come out.Just ask Tiger Woods.

    The feds can investigate roger Clemens and get all that investigatory dirt on him yet they cant catch some of these drug dealers and smugglers in the neighborhood. God bless you Clemens, I still respect you for Beaming mike Piaza in the head with a baseball. Friggin feds need to concentrate on these drug dealers in the street. Wasting tax payer dollars on this Clemens circus, my boy is innocent, he aint know. real talk.
