I have not paid any attention to this story until just the past few days, and I know next to nothing about Barry Bonds or this case except for the fact that Bonds is generally thought to be one of the biggest assholes in the history of all professional sport, (which is obviously really saying something, considering some of his fellow pro athletes) but it sounds like the federal prosecutor has a pretty strong case against ol’ Barry Bonds, and I was just wondering if any of you have any insight on what you think is likely to happen.
Even if he was so inclined, is it too late for BB to get a plea deal at this point?
If he is found guilty, will he serve time?
If he is sent up the river, how long would he likely be put away for?
Finally, is Barry Bonds an egotistical asshole, richly deserving of prison for perjury, or just another guy who did what everyone else was doing, and is only being made an example of?
