Bonds’s Lawyers Rest Their Case Without Calling Witnesses

Lawyers for Barry Bonds, baseball’s home-run record-holder, rested their case today without calling any witnesses, minutes after prosecutors dropped one of four perjury charges against the former San Francisco Giants player.

The jury will get the case tomorrow after prosecutors and Bonds’s lawyers present final arguments, said U.S. District Judge Susan Illston in San Francisco. Prosecutors dropped one of five counts, an accusation that the ballplayer lied by saying he never took “anything” given to him by his former trainer before the 2003 baseball season.
