Jurors in Edwards trial will resume talks Monday

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Jurors deliberating in John Edwards’ campaign corruption trial are going home for the weekend and will resume their discussions Monday.

A judge dismissed the jurors after they deliberated for about five hours on Friday. The jurors requested a list of all of the trial exhibits as well as office supplies, suggesting they were settling in for detailed discussions.

Edwards is accused of orchestrating a plan to use money from wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress during his run for the 2008 White House.

His attorneys say he did not knowingly break the law and that the payments were gifts, not campaign contributions.

Edwards is charged with six criminal counts. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
