Former Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens was found not guilty of all perjury charges in the government’s case against the seven-time Cy Young Award winner.

Clemens faced the charges stemming from his 2008 testimony in front of Congress that he never used performance enhancing drugs during his career.

The jury found him not guilty of six counts perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress.

Deliberations began last Tuesday.

This is the second time Clemens faced these charges.  His first trial was declared a mistrial last July.
