On this date in 2007, Barry Bonds was indicted by a San Francisco federal grand jury on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice, as Leo Panetta of NationalPastime.com writes. Four years prior, Bonds allegedly lied to a grand jury about his PED use, and he potentially could have been sentenced to up to 30 years in prison if convicted of all charges. The slugger was initially convicted on a count of obstruction of justice, but that ruling was overturned earlier this year.
