Clemens Juror: Key Witness In Case Wasn’t Credible

View Comments

WASHINGTON (AP) – A juror in the Roger Clemens perjury case tells The Associated Press that the key prosecution witness in the case wasn’t credible.

The witness, Brian McNamee, was Clemens’ longtime strength coach. McNamee testified that he injected the star pitcher with steroids and human growth hormone. But McNamee’s physical evidence was kept in a beer can and his story changed over time.

Juror Bradford Weaver says McNamee wasn’t credible for the jury because of a lack of “truthfulness.”

Weaver also says the physical evidence wasn’t solid, and he calls government witnesses “kind of wanting.”

Clemens was acquitted last week of charges that he lied to Congress in 2008 when he denied using steroids or HGH.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton on Wednesday released the names of the jurors.
