Robert Clemens Arraigned

A former baseball player will appear in federal court Monday for the first time since he was indicted.

Roger Clemens is expected to plead not guilty.

The 48-year-old will be arraigned on six charges where he lied to congress about his use of performance enhancing drugs.

In 2008, Clemens denied taking steroids or human growth hormones.

But at the same hearing his trainer claimed he injected the pitcher with drugs more than 30 times between 1998 and 2001.

Federal prosecutors have offered Clemens a plea deal but he rejected it.

"Roger did not use steroids. He did not use high and he did not lie to congress about it," Defense Attorney Rusty Hardin said.

The seven time Cy Young award winner is the third baseball player indicted for perjury.

He pitched for 24 seasons with major league teams including the Red Sox, Yankees, Astros and Blue Jays.

Clemens could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
