Clemens Judge Concerned Others’ Drug Use Could Taint Jury

The federal judge presiding over the perjury trial of ex-New York Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens said he may not allow the jury to hear from former teammates about injections they received from Clemens’ accuser, Brian McNamee.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton in Washington today said he’ll decide during trial whether ex-Yankees Chuck Knoblauch, Andy Pettitte, and Mike Stanton can tell jurors about performance-enhancing drug injections given to them by McNamee. Clemens has maintained he believed McNamee injected him with vitamins or other permissible drugs.

“The jury may say ‘Well, if they knew what they were taking from McNamee then why wouldn’t Clemens not know what he was getting,’ " Walton said.

The judge is hearing pre-trial motions today in Washington federal court, where jury selection is scheduled to begin tomorrow.

Prosecutors in the case said they are still seeking audio recordings of Clemens’ 2008 Congressional deposition, and that Congress has refused to turn them over.

The case is U.S. v. Clemens, 10-cr-00223, U.S. District Court, District of Columbia (Washington).
