Judge rejects Roger Clemens’ bid to avoid retrial

WASHINGTON — A federal judge rejected ex-baseball star Roger Clemens request to throw out perjury charges against him and says he must face another trial.

U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton set another trial for April 17. He said if Clemens wants to appeal, he must ask for an expedited request.

Walton said although he’s concerned about the prosecution’s violation of his orders by showing jurors inadmissible evidence, current law does not allow him to throw out the indictment.
