Barry Bonds
1 / 19

Barry Bonds -- In one of the biggest sports scandals of the decade, Bonds was indicted in 2007 on perjury and other charges for allegedly lying about his steroid use during a government investigation. He eventually was convicted of obstruction of justice in 2011, but the conviction was overturned on appeal on April 22, 2015. The controversy has lingered for major-league baseball's home run champ, with Bonds being denied entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame during his first three years of eligibility so far.
