Barry Bonds, baseball’s all-time leader in home runs, was indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice, charged with lying when he told a federal grand jury that he did not knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs.

If convicted on all five counts, baseball’s home run king could go to prison for up to 30 years. The indictment culminated a four-year investigation into steroid use by elite athletes. Bonds has repeatedly denied knowingly using performance-enhancing drugs. He has never been identified by Major League Baseball as testing positive.
