Tammy Thomas verdict doesn't bode well for Barry Bonds
SAN FRANCISCO -- Challenged for the first time to make its case in court, the government continued to pitch a shutout Friday in its prosecution of athletes connected to the BALCO steroids scandal -- a fact that will linger for the next several months as the Barry Bonds case plods forward.After more than a week of testimony and fewer than two days of deliberations, a jury found former elite cyclist Tammy Thomas guilty on three counts of lying to a federal grand jury and one count of obstructing justice in connection with her November 2003 appearance before a San Francisco federal grand jury investigating steroid distribution to elite athletes. Thomas was acquitted on two other perjury-related counts. She is scheduled for sentencing July 25 and could face more than two years in prison.
