Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Roger Clemens has been found not guilty on all six charges in his perjury trial.

A jury found the former pitcher not guilty Monday on two counts of perjury, three counts of making false statements and a single count of obstruction of Congress.

The 49-year-old Clemens was accused of perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress when he testified at a deposition and at a nationally-televised hearing in February 2008. The charges centered on his repeated denials that he used steroids and human growth hormone during his 24-year career.

The 354-game winner was retried after U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton declared a mistrial in the case last July 14 after the prosecution presented evidence he deemed inadmissible.

The verdict is the latest blow to the government's pursuit of athletes accused of drug use.
