SAN FRANCISCO(AP) -A federal judge is unsealing Barry Bonds' grand jury testimony about steroid use, evidence that federal prosecutors used to indict him on perjury charges.
U.S. District Judge Susan Illston made the ruling on Bonds' December 2003 testimony Friday when she ordered prosecutors to amend Bonds' indictment so each of the five counts against him don't include multiple alleged false statements.
The former San Francisco Giants star is asking the judge to dismiss a federal indictment charging him with perjury and obstruction of justice for his grand jury testimony, in which he denied knowingly using illegal performance-enhancing drugs.
