on his testimony, he was indicted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges. earlier this year the jury was deadlocked on perjury charges but did find him guilty of obstruction. and that is a conviction that bonds and his attorneys plan to fight but it will not impact or stop the sentencing phase which is today. will tran is outside of the federal courthouse building waiting for bonds to arrive and talking about the time he defaced or the penalties. >>will: it probably will not be harsh. according to most experts say could be sentenced to house arrest, fed may be up to one year. his house is in beverly hills. the reason why they believe that is because there were two other athletes sentenced to a similar charge and they also suffered house arrest. by the way, those to athletes
were sentenced by the same judge. based on her track record, he will probably get the same thing. even experts admit, every time you go for sentencing it is a case by case situation. she could throw everyone for a loop and to decide to throw him in prison. but prosecutors are asking for 15 months in prison. regardless of what happens, this may or may not be the end of the court journey for barry bonds. if he gets a lenient sentence he might decide, i have spent so much money on lawyers, i do not want to be
under house arrest, but if he wants to fight and pay more money, he will have to go back to court and try to light his criminal record clean. experts say he might do that because he wants a clean record said that he can see if he can get into the baseball hall of fame. everyone knows very bonds and nose that is foreign to him. >>darya: if he does end up fighting this, is that probation put on suspension pending more appeals? >>will: that is the question i have as well. if he is sentenced to house arrest, if he goes to court in the year to get the conviction overturned, we will just have to wait and see. this has nothing to do with that. maybe it will save time served. there are so many things to be worked out but you are right, if he begins serving his sentence for present time for example and then a year later he wins
his conviction, what happens to the time served? maybe it will factor all of that in. there are a lot of things to work out this morning. a great question. >>erica: i have been asking viewers it's very bonds should served jail time as most people are saying that he should not. take a look at some of the responses. there are a lot of heated comments coming in. if you would like to leave your own, check out our facebook fan page. >>mark: a developing story in the south bay, police shot and killed a man after they say he was acting in a threatening manner.
