Feds Want Evidence Admitted in Bonds' Perjury Case

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Federal prosecutors are urging an appeals
court to let them present evidence against Barry Bonds that a trial court judge tossed from his perjury trial.

Prosecutors asked the appeals court Monday to let them present, among other things, test results purporting to show that Bonds used
steroids.

In February, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston ruled that any evidence connected to Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson, was off limits. Anderson has told the judge he would go to jail rather than testify against the slugger.

Bonds has pleaded not guilty to lying to a federal grand jury in 2002 when he denied knowingly taking performance-enhancing drugs.

The government filed its plea with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The appeal has delayed indefinitely the start of the trial.
