NEW YORK (AP) -Victor Conte, the founder of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, believes Barry Bonds won't be indicted.
Conte spent four months in prison after pleading guilty in July 2005 to steroid distribution and money laundering. He denies providing Bonds with performance-enhancing drugs.
A grand jury has been investigating whether Bonds committed perjury when he testified he never knowingly took performance-enhancing drugs.
``I don't believe that they have the evidence to indict Barry Bonds,'' Conte said Tuesday while attending a party for the release of the book ``Steroid Nation'' by Shaun Assael, for which he was interviewed extensively.
Conte said Greg Anderson, Bonds' personal trainer who has been in prison for contempt of court since November for refusing to testify in the perjury probe, will never cooperate because he doesn't trust government authorities.
Conte also criticized lawmakers for asserting steroid use causes teenage suicide.
``There's not a single shred of evidence anywhere that shows that that is the case,'' he said.
