Roger Clemens found not guilty in perjury trial

Former all-star baseball pitcher Roger Clemens (center) and his attorney Rusty Hardin (right) arrive at the U.S. District Court after the jury announced it had reached a verdict in Clemens' perjury and obstruction trial June 18, 2012 in Washington, D.C. The jury found Clemens not guilty on all counts.

This final note on the way out. Holders of Roger Clemens' memorabilia got a reprieve today.

The seven-time Cy Young Award winner has been on trial for perjury -- lying to Congress about whether he's ever used performance-enhancing drugs.

The verdict came back this afternoon. Not guilty on all six counts against him.

An autographed Roger Clemens baseball, by the way? $233.
