Jurors have reached a verdict in John Edwards' campaign corruption trial.
Edwards was found not guilty on count 3, illegal campaign contribution. A mistrial was declared on all other counts.
The jurors have been deliberating for about nine days.
Edwards is accused of masterminding a plan to use money from wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White
House in 2008. Defense attorneys say Edwards did not knowingly break campaign finance laws. They also say the payments to hide his
mistress Rielle Hunter were gifts, not campaign contributions.
Edwards was charged with six criminal counts. They include conspiracy to violate the Federal Election Campaign Act, accepting contributions that exceeded limits and causing his campaign to file a false financial disclosure report.
He would have faced up to 30 years in prison if he had been convicted of all charges.
