Jurors In Edwards Case To Begin 9th Day Of Talks
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The jury in the John Edwards campaign corruption trial is expected to resume a ninth day of talks in North Carolina.
As the jury ended their eighth day of talks without a verdict Wednesday, the judge released four alternate jurors who garnered attention for their matching shirts. They have not participated in the deliberations.
U.S. District Court Judge Catherine C. Eagles did not give any indication of whether she believed the 12 jurors are any closer to deciding the fate of the two-time Democratic presidential candidate.
Edwards faces six felony charges in a case involving nearly $1 million provided by two wealthy political donors to help hide the Democrat’s pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.
