Clemens to be arraigned Monday
A federal judge in Washington has set baseball pitcher Roger Clemens's arraignment for 2 p.m. Monday, when he will face the court for the first time on charges of perjury and obstruction of Congress in connection with his testimony that he never used steroids or performance-enhancing drugs.
Clemens, indicted last Thursday by a federal grand jury on six counts related to his appearance before a House panel in February 2008, has maintained that his statements were truthful and is expected to enter a not-guilty plea.
U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton of the District, who is presiding over the matter, has said he hopes the case will go to trial by next spring.
