    Verdict reached in John Edwards corruption trial – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs

    The jury in the John Edwards trial has reached a verdict after nine days of deliberations, CNN's Joe Johns reports.
    Edwards, a former Democratic U.S. senator and presidential nominee, was charged with accepting illegal campaign contributions, falsifying documents and conspiring to receive and conceal the contributions. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine.

    Not guilty on one charge and a mistrial on other 5.

    Former presidential candidate John Edwards was found not guilty Thursday on one charge that he accepted illegal campaign contributions, and a federal judge declared a mistrial on five other charges when a jury deadlocked after nine days of deliberations.

    A look of relief spread over Edwards' face as he learned that his year-long fight against government prosecutors appeared to be over, and he hugged his lawyers, his daughter Cate and his parents, who had sat behind him in the courtroom for most of the trial.

    "The judge in the John Edwards trial has declared a mistrial on all counts except for the one on which the jury found the former presidential candidate not guilty"

    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?

    I think the "Not Guilty" on what most thought was the most likely charge for him to be found guilty on, considering they then deadlocked on the others, has many of the "experts" surprised. Hard to imagine them retrying him after this. They spent millions to get this non-result.

    I totally and entirely did not expect this. I though sure he was going to be convicted on at least some.

    I don't know enough about the Edwards case to make a knowledgeable statement.
