Clemens Trial Continues in DC
WASHINGTON (AP) - The methodical questioning of potential jurors for former Major League pitcher Roger Clemens' perjury retrial is dragging on, with the prospect that a jury may not be chosen by the end of the week.
The only quick rounds of questioning Wednesday have involved jurors excused for one reason or another -- including some who said religious prohibitions against judging others would prevent them from serving.
The court is narrowing the initial jury pool to eventually select the panelists who will decide whether Clemens lied when he denied using steroids and human growth hormone before a congressional panel in 2008.
Among those who earned a federal judge's initial approval was a woman who said she was a distant relative of Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller.
