Prosecutors want Barry Bonds to do 15 months in prison

26 Comments

On Tuesday, the federal probation officer assigned to Barry Bonds’ case recommended that the Home Run King — people love it when I call him that — get probation when he is sentenced next week.  Today the prosecutors came back with their request: 15 months.

That seems pretty darn harsh given that he was convicted on a single count of obstruction.  But hey, I guess you never get what you want if you don’t ask for it.

Note: the prosecutors in this case never get anything they ask for.  Enjoy your probation, Mr. Bonds.
