The perjury trial of former pitcher Roger Clemens is over almost before it starts as a judge declared a mistrial Thursday on only the second day of testimony in the case.
United States District Judge Reggie Walton declared the mistrial because attorneys for the prosecution presented jurors evidence that he had ruled inadmissable. Walton scolded the prosecution for its action and he declared the mistrial.
The prospect of a new trial is up in the air at this point. Clemens did not offer any comment in leaving the courtroom.
