U.S. Judge Mary Schroeder upheld an obstruction of justice conviction for former San Francisco Giants outfielder Barry Bonds on behalf of a three-judge panel with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on September 13.
Bonds was found guilty of obstruction of justice; however, the jury wasn’t able to reach a verdict on three other perjury charges concerning his steroid use. According to Schroeder, there was sufficient evidence to convict Bonds of the perjury charge because his statements were “evasive, misleading, and capable of influencing the grand jury to minimize the trainer’s role in the distribution of performance-enhancing drugs.”
Bonds appealed the original conviction, but now faces detention time at home.

Judge Sherry Stephens postponed the selection process for the jury members of the high-profile sentencing trial of ex-waitress Jodi Arias to mid-September on Monday, August 26. Once selected, jury members will decide if California-based Arias is to be executed for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander.
After finding her guilty of first-degree murder at Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix, Arizona on May 23, the original jury deadlocked when deciding her punishment.
At a hearing last July, Stephens said she hoped to start jury selection by late September. State prosecutors, on the other hand, had asked for the process to start as early as July 30. If another deadlock happens in this new trial to determine her punishment, Arias would be sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after 25 years.
The trial, which began in January, found Arias guilty of shooting and stabbing Alexander multiple times in May 2008.

An Appleton-area businessman has been accused by the SEC of running a scheme to defraud investors of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and Martin Kohler and Michael Hart of Kohler & Hart, SC, have taken up his defense. Robert Narvett, 48, is the owner of Shield Management Group, a recruiting agency that specializes in professionals in the fields of marketing and sales. According to the SEC’s allegations, Mr. Narvett pursued investors in Shield, for which he promised a 20% return, but instead used the money for personal purposes.
However, as of yet, it isn’t even clear whether any of the investors have lost money on their investments, and at least $242,000 in total payments have been made to investors so far. Michael Hart has definitively stated that the allegations are simply untrue, and that the truth “will come out in the wash.”
