SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Federal prosecutors have dropped four counts of lying to a grand jury against Barry Bonds, leaving him to face trial next year on 10 counts of making false statements plus an addition obstruction of justice charge.

Bonds faces the same potential sentence range - probation to roughly two years in prison - if convicted. His trial is scheduled to begin March 2.

The new indictment, the third against the home-run king, came in response to U.S. District Judge Susan Illston's decision last week ordering prosecutors to again rewrite the technically faulty indictment.
