Bonds asks for extension to May 4 in appeal
Question of the Day
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Barry Bonds has asked for a second extension to file written arguments in his appeal to overturn his obstruction of justice conviction.
Bonds‘ lawyers asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday to extend the deadline from April 20 to May 4. The original deadline had been March 21 before the court granted a 30-day extension last month.
Bonds‘ appeal will be randomly assigned to a three-judge panel that will hear oral arguments this year. A decision is not likely until 2013.
The home run king was sentenced Dec. 16 by U.S. District Judge Susan Illston for his April conviction of a charge of giving an evasive answer to a federal grand jury in 2003 that was investigating steroids distribution.
The seven-time NL MVP was sentenced to 30 days of home confinement, two years of probation, 250 hours of community service in youth-related activities and a $4,000 fine.
