NYT:  Judge Still Weighing Conviction on Obstruction in Bonds Case

Dennis Riordan, a lawyer for Bonds, argued that Bonds was improperly convicted of obstructing justice when he simply rambled for 75 seconds and gave an evasive but not false statement to a question he eventually answered.

Prosecutors, who still have not decided whether to retry Bonds on the three deadlocked counts, argued that the conviction should stand. They said the jurors voted to convict him based on the entire evidence put forth at the trial.

Sounds almost as if the Prosecutors are admitting that it was a compromise verdict, and saying that the Judge should acquiesce in a miscarriage of justice on that basis.
