John Edwards has been acquitted on one count in his federal campaign corruption case, and a judge has declared a mistrial on the remaining five counts.
The mixed result ends a tumultuous afternoon in court. The judge in Greensboro, N.C., initially thought jurors had reached a verdict on all six counts, the Associated Press reports. But when jurors said they were deadlocked on five of the charges, the judge sent them back to try again.
But after about an hour, jurors again said they couldn't agree on verdicts for the five remaining counts. The judge accepted that, and declared a mistrial for those charges.
So which count did jurors acquit him on? Will prosecutors dare to retry him a second time?
