    From the link - What exactly would he get 30 years for if he was found not guilty on one and got a mistrial on the other counts?
    Look at the posting times. I was on the page before PS's posting, I was looking at some other news. Thanks for asking.

    Six counts, possible 5 year sentence on each count. A 30 year sentence was never likely.

    Time to try again.

    If campaign funds were not used (at all in this mess) then I assume that these millions in "magic money" were not even reported as income by those that spent it. Certainly with all of this 'undocumented' money flowing in all directions all sorts of hanky panky was going on. If you make any financial scheme appear confusing enough, the jury will call it all good. His greatest defense was "I may have lied about everything, everytime to everyone else, but I did not commit THIS crime, to the best of my knowledge". USA, USA, USA...

    What does money have to do with this case?

    If the prosecution didn't have the evidence to convict, how did money influence that?

    Really? First off Edwards didn't kill anybody, OJ did. There are plenty of greater scumbags than Edwards.

    nope
    he represented plaintiffs who were harmed by the wrongful actions of physicians and other professionals
