GREENSBORO — The jury in the John Edwards trial announced Thursday afternoon that the jurors have reached a verdict in one of six charges against the former Democratic presidential candidate, but that verdict was not disclosed.
Judge Catherine Eagles sent the jury back to continue deliberating on the five remaining counts.
Edwards is on trial on charges of violating campaign finance laws in his run for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. The jury is in its ninth day of deliberations.
Count three involved a charge that Edwards received an illegal campaign contribution from Virginia Heiress Rachel "Bunny" Mellon.
