Barry Bonds was convicted of obstruction of justice according to ESPN. The defense and the prosecution, however, agreed to a mistrial on the other three counts.

The Jury in the Bonds perjury trial couldn’t reach a verdict on the other three counts against the Home Run King.

The jury’s guilty verdict means they believe Bonds lied in the 2003 doping investigation.

USA Today reported that a May 20 date was set for a status hearing, and a sentencing date should be announced on that date.

Wednesday was the fourth day of deliberations for the jury.

The San Jose Mercury News reported Wednesday afternoon that there seemed to be confusion over where the jury stands on the verdict.
