Greg Anderson is released from prison

Apr 8, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

Anderson, former trainer to Bonds, arrives to Bonds' perjury trial at the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco

Barry Bonds’ non-testifying former trainer has been released from prison, reports the Daily News.

This is not terribly surprising given that the evidence-portion of the trial is over and his testimony is no longer required, thus no longer in need of being compelled.  It will be interesting to see now, however, whether he will be prosecuted for his continuing failure to testify, which is a totally different thing than being jailed in order to make him talk.

If the prosecution loses the Bonds case, I bet there will be some people there who will want to make him pay.

    Any conviction of him wouldn’t result in a sentence less than his time served?

      He would receive an incarceration credit to be used at a future time as needed. Comes in the form of a Dublin gift card.

    So now he can reap whatever reward Bonds has promised in exchange for his clamming up?

      I’m sure it was COD from his first of several contempts of court. Anderson has already paid more than Bonds ever will. The Feds have made the past 8 years of his life hell and will probably try him at some point in the near future. Can someone give me an adequate reason why I’ve been helping pay for the Feds’ salaries during this witch hunt?

    Please go away

    And then, whoever won’t testify against Anderson can be put on trial, and then the guy who won’t testify against THAT guy can…

    …and on… and on… and on…

    Good times!

    Pretty soon they’ll get to me, and I will tell them anything they want to hear just so that this entire subject goes away. Far away. We gotta clear the deck of this stale issue to make room for Wilpon v. Picard.

      Wilpon v. Picard… make it so!

      Captain Picard? I am pretty sure he could be up an old dude!

      You are forgetting that we still need to pay for that danger to society, Roger Clemens. Where does the madness end?

        The madness does not end. Call it Heisenbergian indeterminacy. Call it chaos. Call it entropy. Call it synchronicity. Call it idiocy. Dinna matter what ye call it laddie. It’s here to stay – a little seasoning on reality to keep existence from being as boring and predictable as a Glen Beck rally for America.

    Can’t he take the 5th. His American right
