The Jury Is Deliberating John Edwards' Fate!

John edwards jury deliberating

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?

    He is a slime ball- but since he is an attorney (who can communicate with dead babies), he most likely will get off (again). He was smart enough to develop many levels to his stealing of campaign money. His defense that his payments to his lover was they were a gift from his buddies.. that's rich, but it just might work out for him. Either way, he gets it in the end. Hopefully, from behind in prison. Redstatereport

    Sad to see this guy once a rising star among politician to fall so hard. It amazes me how he himself is a lawyer knowing full well the consequences of the crimes yet committed them any ways. Sad.

    Every single journalist and media whore ALL KNEW ABOUT EDWARDS' GIRLFRIEND.
    -
    They ALL chose to hide it from the public because he was a Democrat.
    -
    The media continues to fail America to advance their own Commie agenda.
    They are the main reason the sytem is broke besides the people that reelects crooks year after year.
    -
    The media does not report the news.
    Just propaganda like Pravda.

    This trial is so ridiculous! He cheated on his wife, but is being punished for pissing off Bunny Mellon!

    Re: Deja Vu – What punishment? He's been free to stay in his mansion and troll for hook-ups with young women since a scandal rag broke this story. Johnny broke the law. He used Bunny's money to support his mistress and love-child. I hope Breck Boy's hair stays pretty in jail.
