"Bonds Avoids Prison Time for Giving Evasive Testimony"
From the New York Times:
SAN FRANCISCO — Barry Bonds, baseball’s home run champion, avoided a prison term Friday when Judge Susan Illston sentenced him to 30 days of house arrest, 2 years of probation, 250 hours of community service with youth groups and a $4,000 fine for providing evasive testimony to a federal grand jury eight years ago.
Bonds’s lawyers stated their intention to appeal, and Illston agreed to stay the sentence through the appeal process.
