Exhibits submitted for Clemens trial
WASHINGTON -- Prosecutors have submitted hundreds of exhibits for the upcoming trial of former pitcher Roger Clemens, who is accused of lying to Congress when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone.
The exhibits include gauze pads, needles, cotton balls and Kleenex. Clemens' former trainer, Brian McNamee, who will testify at the trial, has said he used those items to inject Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs. They also include a beer can and FedEx box belonging to McNamee. The former trainer has said he used those to store the medical waste for years.
Other exhibits include excerpts from depositions of Clemens and a video of the hearing he testified at before Congress, team photos of teams he played for and DNA samples and reports.
Jury selection in the case begins Monday.
