SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal appeals court is allowing video cameras into a hearing next week for Barry Bonds' appeal of his felony obstruction of justice conviction.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday granted permission to Fox News and local television station KRON-4 to videotape the proceedings.
Both outfits say they will not air next Wednesday's proceedings live.
Bonds, baseball's career home run leader, is appealing his 2011 conviction. A jury found then that Bonds gave an evasive answer to a grand jury questioning him about alleged steroid use. Bonds had been asked whether his personal trainer ever gave him ``anything that required a syringe to inject yourself with.''
The 9th Circuit has allowed cameras in its courts since 1991.
