Roger Clemens’s perjury case was declared a mistrial yesterday. I have no legal experience other than the B+ I got in my Business Law class, but even I wouldn’t have made an idiotic move like the prosecution did. The judge told the prosecutors early on that any testimony from Andy Pettitte’s wife could not be used because she would have gotten her information from Andy and not directly from Clemens. Of course, the prosecutors then ran a tape of a Congressman referring to what Andy told the Mrs. The judge was not pleased and called the mistrial.

Clemens probably broke the law but if the government can’t prove his wrongdoing in a quick and efficient way, then maybe it should drop the case. There’s people that committed real crimes that should stand before a court instead of a baseball player that lied about taking steroids. This would have never happened if Franklin and Bash were in charge.
