John Edwards jury reaches verdict on one of six counts

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The jury in the John Edwards campaign corruption trial 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.
