A Mistrial Declared In John Edwards Trial
" GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Ex-presidential candidate John Edwards thanked jurors and his family after a mistrial was declared in his campaign corruption trial and says he is responsible for his sins.

Edwards speaking on the courthouse steps on Thursday also choked up when speaking of his 4-year-old daughter whom he conceived with his mistress while running for president.

Edward also said he believes he did nothing illegal, but that he did an “awful, awful lot” that was wrong and that no one else was responsible for his sins but him.

Edwards was acquitted on one charge of campaign finance fraud and a mistrial was declared on five other counts.

The monthlong trial exposed a sordid sex scandal that dashed Edwards‘ White House aspirations in 2008.
