Barry Bonds to begin serving sentence
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Former Major League slugger, Barry Bonds may soon be serving his 30 days of house arrest.
A federal judge has ordered him to meet with the U.S. Probation Department to work out the details of his sentence.
In 2011 he was convicted on obstruction of justice and ordered to serve a month of home confinement and two years of probation.
But that sentence had been on hold while he appealed the conviction.
He lost that appeal, and now says he'd like to immediately serve his sentence.
He says he may still take his appeal to a higher court.
