Miguel Tejada's legal woes worsen

New, 5 comments

When former Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski testifies Thursday before a federal grand jury, Roger Clemens shouldn't be the only one who's nervous. Miguel Tejada may be implicated as well for his alleged actions in trying to obtain steroids. While playing for the Oakland A's in 2003, Tejada was said to have asked then teammate Adam Piatt if he had access to steroids. Piatt then purchased performance enhancing drugs from Radomski, who was told that the drugs were for Tejada.

If a prosecutor asks for an indictment from a grand jury, they'll probably get one. As the article says, the defense isn't allowed to make objections, present evidence or anything of that sort. It's the prosecutor's courtroom, which could spell disaster for Clemens and possibly Tejada. As far as Clemens is concerned, ex-teammate Andy Pettitte and former trainer Brian McNamee are slated to testify as their knowledge of any performance enhancing drug use by the seven time Cy Young winner.
