John Edwards asks to delay trial, citing illness

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Former presidential candidate John Edwards is seeking to delay his criminal trial over campaign finances. He says he has been diagnosed with a medical condition that will make it difficult for him to attend.

Edwards’s trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 30.

In a motion filed Thursday, Edwards’ defense team asked a judge to delay the start of the trial at least two months.

His illness was not publicly disclosed. Edwards’s lawyers filed sealed records with the court.

Federal prosecutors filed a separate motion opposing the delay. The start date has already been put back once after Edwards said he needed more time to prepare his defense and attend his daughter’s wedding.

Edwards is charged with six counts related to campaign finance violations. He appeared healthy at a court hearing last week.
