WASHINGTON (AP) -- After eight weeks, jurors will finally hear closing arguments in the Roger Clemens perjury trial Tuesday. They're expected to begin deliberations later in the day.

Jurors will have to digest and process 26 days of testimony from 46 witnesses.

On Monday, the defense made it official that Clemens would not take the stand. With the jury out of the room, Clemens came up to the podium, leaned in and told the judge in a deep Texas drawl, "I am not testifying."

The former star baseball pitcher is on trial for allegedly lying to Congress when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone.
