A federal judge has ordered Barry Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson, to court to disclose whether he intends to testify at the slugger's trial next month.
U.S. District Judge Susan Illston scheduled a hearing for
Wednesday morning and ordered the U.S. Marshals Service to tell
Anderson and provide him with transportation, if needed.
The judge has barred prosecutors from using key evidence, such
as positive steroids tests, at Bonds' March 2 trial unless Anderson
Anderson has said through his attorney he will refuse to
testify, and he may be sent to prison on contempt of court charges.
Anderson was sent to prison after refusing to testify about Bonds
before a federal grand jury in 2006.
