Roger Clemens Trial: Ex Red Sox, Yankees Pitcher Found Not Guilty In Perjury Trial

Roger Clemens has been found not guilty on all counts in his federal perjury trial, as a verdict was reached on Monday afternoon. Clemens, a 24-year veteran of Major League Baseball, was accused of lying to prosecutors about his use of steroids during his historic career. Clemens played 13 years with the Boston Red Sox from 1984 through 1996.

The verdict was reached after 10 hours of deliberation, concluding a 10 week trial after Clemens' initial perjury trial was deemed a mistrial after prosecutors presented inadmissible evidence. In total, the investigation spanned five years and cost between $2 to $3 million.

Clemens' career began in 1984 with the Red Sox. In 383 career games with the Sox, Clemens posted a 192-111 record with a 3.06 ERA and 2,590 strikeouts. For his career, Clemens was 354-184 with a career 3.12 ERA and 4,672 strikeouts in 709 games. Clemens was a seven time Cy Young Award recipient and a two-time World Series champion.
