The trial has been moved from April 5 to July 6

Roger Clemens is expected to return to U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. today for a hearing in connection with his indictment on charges of lying to a congressional committee that he never used performance-enhancing drugs.

The hearing is expected to be a procedural matter in which lawyers for Clemens and prosecutors tell the judge whether both sides are on schedule for an April trial.

Roger needs to be jailed like anybody else would for the same crime. As a high-profile causian male he will not do any time at all. I guarantee it. History guarantees it.

The problem for the defense and prosecutors is they do not have who they really want in court- Barry Bonds. But there is not evidence to support Bonds' using steriods- only heresay from people who want his record tarnished and so called fans that can not think for themselves.

It is wishful thinking that Clemens will get any jail time. What needs to happen to save tax-payer dollars is to drop the waste-of-time "drama" before it begins. Watch history repeat itself. Sorry if I hurt any feelings with the truth.

Remember, you heard it here first.
