Prosecutors said in a filing to U.S. District Judge Susan Illston that the former San Francisco Giants player, who was convicted of obstruction of justice for his evasive testimony before a grand jury, engaged in "a calculated plan to obfuscate and distract the grand jury from getting to the truth" about the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative in Burlingame, which distributed steroids to professional athletes, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday.
Bonds is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 16.
Defense attorneys have asked Illston to impose a sentence of probation and a short period of house arrest. They have also indicated an intention to appeal the conviction.
