Clemens trial: Prosecutors’ opening statements

Del Quentin Wilber reports on the Crime Scene blog:

Federal prosecutors told jurors Wednesday morning that former super-star pitcher Roger Clemens took performance-enhancing drugs to lengthen his playing career and then lied about it to Congress because he was worried about his legacy.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Durham also told jurors in opening statements during Clemens’ perjury trial that prosecutors would prove their case by presenting testimony from 45 witnesses, as well as forensic evidence, including tests that link Clemens’ DNA to needles used to inject him with steroids.
