Bonds asks for rehearing
SAN FRANCISCO - Barry Bonds has asked a federal appeals court to reconsider its refusal to overturn his felony obstruction conviction.
His legal team filed the request with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. A three-judge panel upheld Bonds' conviction in September, more than 2 years after a jury found him guilty.
Bonds is asking the court to assemble a special panel of 11 judges to rehear the case.
