Bonds to face trial on 10 counts of lying
Updated: December 4, 2008, 7:16 PM ET
SAN FRANCISCO -- Federal prosecutors dropped four counts of lying to a grand jury against Barry Bonds, leaving him to face trial next year on 10 counts of making false statements plus an addition obstruction of justice charge.
Bonds faces the same potential sentence range -- probation to roughly two years in prison -- if convicted. His trial is scheduled to begin March 2.
Thursday's indictment, the third against the home-run king, came in response to U.S. District Judge Susan Illston's decision last week ordering prosecutors to again rewrite the technically faulty indictment.

I've certainly never been a Bonds fan, but I can come up with dozens of people who have swindled millions of $$ from hard-working, law-abiding people who should be gone after with the same vigor they've exerted on Bonds. Sometimes our society is one big hypocrisy. _________________ He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy!
