Roger Clemens has been found not guilty in his perjury trial as a jury has granted the former pitcher a full aquittal. 

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

The former pitcher faced a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine but would probably get only 15 months to 21 months under U.S. sentencing guidelines.

Clemens faces 6 counts total-

1 count of obstruction of Congress

3 counts of making a false statement

2 counts of perjury.

In a press conference after the verdict was announced, Clemens told reporters that-

“I put a lot of hard work into [my] career… I appreciate my teammates that came in & all the emails & calls”

Looks like Clemens has cleared his name after a long battle.
