SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds has paid $4,100 in penalties stemming from his obstruction of justice conviction two years ago.

A filing Monday in U.S. District Court in San Francisco says Bonds paid the money Oct. 2. Bonds was fined $4,000, which goes to a crime victims fund, and given a $100 special assessment.

The seven-time NL MVP was convicted of one obstruction count in April 2011 by a jury that found an answer he gave was criminally evasive during 2003 testimony before a grand jury investigating the distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. The jury deadlocked on three counts charging Bonds with making false statements, and they were dismissed.

Bonds' sentence from U.S. District Judge Susan Illston in December 2011 also included 30 days of house arrest with location monitoring, two years of probation and 250 hours of community service with youth-related activities.

Bonds' conviction was upheld in September by a unanimous three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and he agreed to start serving the sentence. He has asked the 9th Circuit to have an 11-judge limited en banc panel review the case.
