Barry Bonds Sentenced to House Arrest in Beverly Hills Home, Avoids Prison

However, the sentence has been placed on hold pending the baseball slugger's appeal of his felony obstruction of justice conviction.

A federal judge sentenced Barry Bonds Friday to 30 days' confinement in his Beverly Hills home, probation and community service, but the sentence was put on hold pending an appeal of Bonds' felony obstruction of justice conviction, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Dec. 16 sentence came after Bonds was convicted in April on one count of obstruction of justice for his 2003 grand jury testimony regarding an investigation of BALCO, the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative that was selling banned steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs to the nation's top athletes. A 14-time MLB All Star, Bonds also faced several counts of perjury but was not convicted on those charges.

Sports Illustrated describes Bonds' home as a "six-bedroom, 10-bathroom Beverly Hills estate" in the 90210 ZIP code valued at $10.6 million.
