Lance Williams (pictured) says he expects to avoid jail despite refusing to reveal his source of grand jury transcripts concerning the use of steroids by Barry Bonds and other star athletes. Williams, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, was back in his hometown Friday (June 24) to address the local SPJ chapter when Cincinnati Enquirer reporter John Erardi asked him a few questions. “We think we will (be able to) find a judge to give us some relief,” Williams told Erardi. He also comments on e-mails that show steroid-maker Victor Conte probably leaked the transcripts to Williams’ partner in the stories, Mark Fainaru-Wada: “(The e-mails show) a reporter trying to get information about an important case … (Fainaru-Wada) is shaking every tree there is.” (Chronicle file photo by Mark Costantini.)
