Roger Clemens jury deliberating

WASHINGTON -- Jurors have resumed deliberations in the Roger
Clemens perjury trial following a four-day break.

They reconvened Monday morning after deliberating for just a few
hours last week.

Jurors didn't meet last Thursday or Friday because U.S. District
Judge Reggie Walton had a long-scheduled speaking engagement in New
Orleans. He said he would have canceled his trip, but some jurors
also already had commitments for those days.

Clemens is charged with lying to Congress in 2008 when he denied
using steroids or human growth hormone.

The former pitcher faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in
prison and a $1.5 million fine if convicted on all six counts - but
would probably get only 15 months to 21 months under U.S.
sentencing guidelines.
