Barry Bonds Convicted of Obstructing Justice

So baseball has finally got their man after a U.S. jury convicted Barry Bonds on Wednesday of one count of obstructing justice but deadlocked on three other charges of whether baseball's home run king lied to a grand jury investigating the use of steroids in sports.
Bonds, fighting for his reputation, sat impassively as the jury was dismissed. His attorney, Allen Ruby, said he would file a motion to dismiss the conviction. Bonds faces up to 10 years in prison on the conviction but would likely receive far less probably probation with a lot of community service hours.
