Jury at Edwards trial to deliberate for 3rd day
GREENSBORO, NC -- The jury at the trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards is set to deliberate his fate for a third day.
The jurors ended their talks Monday shortly after requesting access to a second set of exhibits they wanted for a closer look, including a handwritten note from Rachel "Bunny" Mellon. The 101-year-old heiress provided most of the nearly $1 million in secret payments prosecutors say Edwards used to help hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.
The jury began its deliberations Friday after nearly four weeks of testimony in the case. Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six felony counts related to campaign finance violations. He faces up to 30 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines if convicted on all counts.
