The verdict is in for the Roger Clemens perjury trial and the seven-time Cy Young winner has been found NOT guilty on ALL counts.
Roger Clemens has been acquitted of all charges. He squeezed Rusty Hardin's hand in thanks as the last count was read.— T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) June 18, 2012
According to T.J. Quinn's reporting, the jury deliberated for less than 11 hours. The length of the trial is part of the story here, on how dramatic and boring it was at the same time. Brian McNamee spoke of the first time he encountered Roger Clemens' rear and also attempted to present what they called "evidence" in a Miller Lite beer can.
There were also juror dismissed for sleeping through all of that.
The prevailing sentiment is that this trial either should have been over a long time ago, or rather it should have never even happened at all. Still, Clemens gets to walk away from this for a second time in as many years.
