Fed Prosecutors Drop Remaining Charges Against Barry Bonds

By Allan Lengel

Baseball slugger Barry Bonds got a little good news even though he faces sentencing Dec. 16 for an obstruction of justice conviction in San Francisco.

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday dropped the remaining three charges of making false statement, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times. The jury had deadlocked on those charges in April, opening the door for the prosecution to consider a retrial.

The Times reported that prosecutors dropped the charges days after a judge upheld the obstruction of justice conviction.
