Jurors in Edwards trial ask to look at exhibits

Associated Press

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Jurors deliberating in the John Edwards campaign corruption trial are asking to see several exhibits and they say they need office supplies to help with their discussions.

The request came about two hours after they started discussions Friday. The jurors asked for eight specific exhibits as well as a complete list of the exhibits. They also need a board and markers to write on it.

Edwards is accused of masterminding a plan to use money from wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the 2008 White House. Defense attorneys say Edwards did not knowingly break campaign finance laws. They also say the payments were a gift, not a campaign contribution.

He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
