Moments ago, the jury sent a note to the judge indicating that it was deadlocked.
Earlier today, that same jury found Edwards not guilty on Count 3 of the indictment. That charge pertains specifically to more than $700,000 in donations Rachel “Bunny” Mellon gave Edwards to allegedly cover up an extramarital affair and illegitimate child.
Now, the jury has revealed that it is deadlocked on the 5 remaining charges and Judge Catherine Eagles has declared a mistrial on those charges.
The jury began deliberations on May 18 after a month of testimony.
