Roger Clemens Trial: U.S. District Court Declares Case A Mistrial

Roger Clemens is off the hook, for now. Clemens, who was standing trial for perjury, had his case declared a mistrial by U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton early Thursday afternoon.

The jury was excused due to what Walton a "direct violation" of his orders when the prosecution played a video from Clemens' 2008 testimony. According to ESPN's T.J. Quinn, the court has to decide whether Clemens can be retried or if doing so would be double-jeopardy. (via WEEI)
