Clemens to be Re-Tried in April
by

Yesterday, Judge Reggie Walton rejected Roger Clemens’ bid to have perjury charges against him dismissed. So Clemens will now stand trial for a second time in April 2012. Judge Walton had declared a mistrial in July after the prosecution introduced evidence that had previously been deemed inadmissable.

Clemens’ attorneys argued that the prosecution had intentionally tried to bring about a mistrial. However, I think that’s too clever by half. It would appear that in this case the prosecution is simply incompetent rather than malevolent. Still, it doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in Eric Holder’s Department of Justice.
