John Edwards Found NOT GUILTY! Mistrials On All Counts But One!

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik

john edwards not guilty

Congrats, John Edwards! You're off the hook …for now!!

Having been accused of soliciting almost a million from financial backers to help cover up his affair (and the baby that came with it) during his 2008 run for the White House, a jury reached a verdict today after nine days of deliberations!

On count three of accepting illegal campaign contributions from heiress Rachel 'Bunny' Mellon, the former presidential candidate has been found NOT GUILTY!

On the five other counts? The judge has declared mistrials on all of 'em!

It's not clear whether or not prosecutors will fight for a retrial, but one thing's for sure — he's a lucky, lucky man!

    He will have his day of reckoning!

    Your headline is misleading. The man is still in trouble as he was found guilty of one charge, which is a serious one. He could get 30 years in jail and a million plus fine.

    Two words. Disgusting pig.

    So proud to be a North Carolinian right now. First we vote against gay marriage, then we have preachers advocating fencing in all of the gays or beating children if they're gay, then we have Klan rallies held in 2012, and now jurors in this fine state acquit and mistrial this sleazebag. Yep…couldn't be more proud.

    He is not out of hot water yet. He is not "lucky" yet… the prosecution will decide whether to retry him or not. It will depend on how the jury voted (even though they were 'hung', it will depend on the majority vote). This is not over for Mr. Edwards… not by a long shot.

    Still guilty in the court of public opinion. R.I.P. Liz.

    Why are you congratulating someone who shows no moral character? Even when he was with Lisa Jo Druck (aka Rielle Hunter), he was known to troll for young women in their 20's/early 30's for one night stands. He stole money from a woman @100 years old. Round of applause?
