Professor Robert Weisberg is quoted in this article.

Robert Weisberg, a professor of law at Stanford University Law School and head of its criminal justice center, said, "I don’t think anybody could describe what’s happened in the Balco case as efficacious."

... Weisberg said prosecutors may avoid an indictment by coming up with a social solution, a quiet bargain that would preserve Hank Aaron’s career home run record: If the federal government drops its investigation of Bonds, he would agree to retire.
