WASHINGTON (AP) -- Roger Clemens' fate is in the hands of a jury that will decide if the former pitcher lied about performance-enhancing substances.

The panel of eight women and four men began deliberations Tuesday after a day of closing arguments in the ninth week of the trial.

Clemens is charged with lying when he told Congress in 2008 that he never used steroids and human growth hormone.

The trial's key witness was Clemens' longtime strength coach. Brian McNamee spent a week on the stand and said he injected Clemens with both steroids and HGH.

Clemens' lawyers spent much of the trial attacking McNamee's credibility and did so again during their final statements to the jury.

The prosecution conceded in its closing that McNamee is a "flawed man."
