It's all but over for John Edwards!
His campaign finance trial has concluded so now he can only sit and wait to find out whether the jury finds him innocent or guilty as they begin deliberations today.
If found guilty of the six charges that include conspiracy to violate the Federal Election Campaign Act, accepting contributions that exceeded campaign finance limits, and causing his campaign to file a false financial disclosure report, the former presidential candidate could receive up to 30 years in prison!
In the defense's closing arguments, Edwards' lawyer argued that he may have lied to his wife and the rest of the country, but he didn't break the law:
"This is a case that should define the difference between a wrong and a crime … between a sin and a felony. John Edwards has confessed his sins. He will serve a life sentence for those. But he has pleaded not guilty to violating the law."
From everything we've heard about this case, it sounds like he broke the law on top of his wife's heart! Do U think the jury will find him guilty or innocent?
