E&P says that Mark Fainaru-Wada (pictured) is confident that he will not be going to jail even though a judge yesterday sentenced him and fellow reporter Lance Williams to 18 months in jail for refusing to reveal the source of a grand jury transcript in the Barry Bonds steroids case. “I continue to hope and feel that we are going to win at some point,” Fainaru-Wada told E&P this morning. “We hope that someone is going to find some argument in the law. We have a good case and someone is going to recognize we have room here.” He plans to be back at work Monday, where he and Williams will continue their BALCO investigation, jail and hearings not withstanding.
