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!

Since eight jury members voted in favor of the actress receiving punitive damages and they needed nine, her legal team thinks they can win a retrial and filed papers that state:

Roger Clemens Going Back On Trial For Perjury

Filed under: Legal MattersBaseball

Roger Clemens

Despite the mistrial declared by a judge in July, Roger Clemens is going back to court to defend himself against perjury allegations for lying in a 2008 hearing that he never used steroids or other enhancement drugs.

Federal Judge Reggie Walton rejected ex-baseball pitcher's request to toss the perjury charges against him and says he must face another trial on April 17.

Obviously, Clemens' legal camp isn't happy and has said, “This case should end. He’s been put through enough.”

The proceedings were immediately stopped this past July after prosecutors "inadvertently" allowed jurors to see comments by U.S. Rep. Elijah E. Cummings during the 2008 hearing of which the charges stem from.
