Roger Clemens Indicted for Obstruction, Lying About Steroid Use

Roger Clemens, seven-time winner of Major League Baseball’s Cy Young pitching award, was charged with lying to Congress about using steroids, joining a growing list of ballplayers accused of cheating.

A federal grand jury in Washington indicted Clemens, 48, yesterday on six counts, including obstructing Congress, making false statements and perjury. If convicted, he faces as much as 21 months in prison under U.S. sentencing guidelines, prosecutors said yesterday in a statement.
