(CBS/AP) SAN FRANCISCO - U.S. District Judge Susan Illston is scheduled to sentence former MLB player Barry Bonds today in court.
Bonds is facing a sentencing range of probation to 21 months in prison for his obstruction of justice conviction.
The deferral probation department is recommending Illston give Bonds probation, a term of house arrest and community service. However, the prosecution is asking for a 15-month prison sentence.
Bond's attorneys say they agree with the probation department recommendation, although they say the house arrest provision isn't necessary.
The baseball homerun king Bonds was convicted of purposely trying to mislead a federal grand jury investigating sports doping in a December 2003 court appearance.
