2012: JOHN EDWARDS VERDICT REACHED; INNOCENT OR GUILTY? OR MISTRIAL?

31 May

UPDATE 4PM:  MISTRIAL ON 5 COUNTS!  SAY WHAT?

It was just announced that the Jurors have reached a verdict in the John Edwards trial.  However, CNN is reporting that a verdict was only reached on one of the six counts, so the judge has ordered them to continue deliberating. 

The former U.S. Senator and ex-Presidential candidate John Edwards was charged with six criminal counts.  This includes; accepting illegal campaign contributions and conspiracy.  During his long marriage, he reportedly went to long lengths to cover up his extramarital affair.   He allegedly used $1 million from two wealthy donors to cover up his affair with Rielle Hunter, who was a staff member for his campaign.  

If found guilty on all counts, he could spend up to 30 years in prison and ordered to pay $1.5 million in fines.  The saga continues…this would make it one of the most costly affairs in history!  Hope she was worth it.

Update:  He was later found not guilty on 1 of 6 counts in campaign fraud trial; mistrial declared on others due to a hung jury.   The sick part is that he gave a press conference talking about how he will continue “saving the children”, what does that have to do with anything?  He is delusional and after watching the biography on him, the speech he gave seemed insincere.  I don’ buy a word coming out of his mouth.
