roger clemensRoger Clemens pled not guilty in federal court Monday to charges that he lied to Congress. The arraignment of the seven-time Cy Young Award winner, which included six counts, comes more than two years after he told the Congressional Oversight Committee that he had never taken performance-enhancing drugs.

According to a USA Today account, Clemens’ attorneys were presented with a “voluminous amount of evidence” that was catalogued in a 34-page index prior to the hearing. Because of the large amount of evidence against him, U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton delayed the trial date to April 5.

Clemens is facing three counts of making false statements, two counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of Congress.
