Barry Bonds seeks dismissal of felony conviction

A lawyer for Barry Bonds has urged a federal appeals court to toss out the slugger's obstruction of justice conviction.

Dennis Riordan argued Wednesday before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Bonds' was never specifically charged with the crime he was convicted of. A jury in April 2011 found Bonds guilty of obstruction for saying he was a "celebrity child" when asked about injecting steroids.

 That particular exchange wasn't included in the indictment.

 Prosecutors argue that the indictment charged Bonds generally with giving misleading testimony, which included the statement at issue.

 The three-judge panel was not expected to rule Wednesday.
