Testimony completed in Clemens perjury trial

WASHINGTON — Testimony has been completed at the Roger Clemens perjury trial.

The government presented three rebuttal witnesses Monday after the defense rested its case.

This is the ninth week of the trial that will determine whether Clemens lied when he told Congress in 2008 that he never used steroids and human growth hormone.

Jurors heard 46 witnesses over 25 days of testimony. The last witness was FBI agent John Longmire, who appeared on the stand three times.

Closing arguments will be heard Tuesday. The case could go to the jury Tuesday afternoon.
