Edwards Trial

John Edwards arrives at a federal courthouse during the eighth day of jury deliberations in his trial on charges of campaign corruption in Greensboro...

The jury in the campaign corruption trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards has reached a verdict on one of six counts, but is apparently deadlocked on the others.
The judge told the jury Thursday that she understood that the panel had reached a verdict on all counts, and the jury foreman said no.
Prosecutors argued that the jury should keep deliberating and the defense asked for the verdict on the one count and a mistrial on the others.
The judge is taking a five minute break to weigh her options.
