Roger Clemens perjury trial pushed back

Associated Press Associated Press

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- A judge has delayed trial for baseball star Roger Clemens until July so attorneys can review "voluminous" evidence.

Clemens was originally scheduled to go on trial in April on charges he lied about using performance-enhancing drugs.

At a hearing Wednesday, prosecutors said the case has produced as many as 54,000 pages of evidence. Clemens' attorney Rusty Hardin said they need more time to go through it and hire an expert witness to examine scientific evidence against Clemens.

Hardin claims the Mitchell Commission and a congressional panel that investigated the use of performance-enhancing drugs are refusing to turn over material as evidence for the criminal case. He said he would request a subpoena.

Clemens did not comment during the hearing.
