6:33 am
his attorneys want straight probation. joining me legal analyst dean johnson. which way do you think the judge will go? >> i have no doubt she will go for house arrest and probation. she has had two similar cases in which she has done that. more importantly, she has announced as a matter of principle she thinks that the people who were the users of designer steroids and got themselves in this shouldn't spend more time in jail and shouldn't suffer more than the guys who invented and actually sold those designer steroids. >> reporter: bonds' attorneys are vowing to appeal the one conviction. they have a couple weeks to get that done what do you think the chances of that are? >> i have no doubt they will file the appeal they have one of the top appellate lawyers in the country on their team. whether the appeal will be successful, i have my doubts this was a very factual case. and the fact that barry bonds was evasive in answering questions posed by the prosecutors is something the
6:34 am
jury decided. appellate cores reluctant to overturn those jury decisions. >> reporter: your overview of the prosecution s this a victory for them? they did -- did get a conviction? >> i would characterize this as a pyrrhic victory, yes the prosecution won, but the costs far outweigh benefit in exchange for short sentences on a few people who got themselves entangled in this whole affair, prosecutors have spent 52 s of the taxpayers' money. i don't think -- 52 million dollars of the taxpayer's money i don't think the benefits justify that cost. >> reporter: dean johnson, thank you. sentencing at 11:00 this morning we'll bring it to you live, vic lee inside the courtroom, jonathan bloom outside the courtroom we will have the sentencing as soon as it comes down. terry mcsweeney, abc7 news. there's been a massive

execution. state attorneys will get a chance to change the judge's mind today. california executions are already on hold while a federal judge considers a separate legal challenge pg&e has been given the okay to restore normal pressure to three peninsula gas pipelines after completing safety checks. pg&e reduced the pressure by 20%, shortly after last year's deadly san bruno explosion and fire. since then, the utility says it has worked to verify the safety of the pipelines through pressure testing, visual inspections and records verification. pg&e says restoring normal pressure will provide customers in san francisco and san mateo counties with adequate gas service during the winter. there's a stark sign of the times this morning outside san francisco's glide memorial church. people began lining up last night for a food give away that doesn't begin until 7:30 this morning. the church is plan fog give away 5500 bags of groceries.
6:38 am
