SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Barry Bonds has pleaded not guilty to 15
felony charges of lying to a federal grand jury about his performance-enhancing drug use.

Baseball's home run king pleaded not guilty to similar
accusations in December, but a judge ordered prosecutors to rewrite
the indictment. The new indictment includes no new allegations.

Bonds was re-arraigned Friday on 15 felony counts of lying under
oath. Prosecutors say he lied when he told a grand jury
investigating the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative in 2003 that he
never knowingly took steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs.

Bonds also is scheduled to appear later Friday at a status
conference where a trial date might be set.
