Steroid user Barry Bonds asked a federal judge to dismiss perjury charges against the steroid user Wednesday, arguing that the indictment is “scattershot” and noted for its “striking inartfulness.”
The lawyers said “the questions posed to him by two different prosecutors were frequently imprecise, redundant, overlapping and frequently compound.”
Prosecutors asked Bonds several times whether personal trainer Greg Anderson supplied him with steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs beginning in 2000. Bonds answered “no” or “not at all,” but his lawyers argued that the questions were not clear.
Bonds’ lawyers asked U.S. District Judge Susan Illston to either toss the case or order prosecutors to streamline the indictment, which cites 19 different instances of Bonds’ alleged lying.

So…apparently, Mr. Bonds thinks he can get a FEDERAL JUDGE to dismiss a case that has taken several years to build out the window, because he thinks its tricky and clever. I’m speechless. Although, I think this may put Bonds up for Dumbass of the Year.
