Roger Clemens' arraignment date set for Monday

August 26, 2010 |  8:59 am

Clemens_400 Pitching legend Roger Clemens will be arraigned on charges of perjury, making false statements and obstruction of Congress on Monday in Washington, D.C.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the arraignment will be heard in Judge Reggie Walton's chambers. The onetime pitching star for the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Houston Astros is expected to post bail and return to Houston late Monday or early Tuesday.

The six-count indictment issued a week ago by a federal grand jury could lead to a fine of up to $1.5 million and a maximum prison term of 30 years.
