Jury in John Edwards trial wraps 5th day of talks

Jury in John Edwards trial ends 5th day of deliberations after looking at about 20 exhibits By The Associated Press

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) ' The jury in John Edwards' campaign corruption trial has concluded a fifth day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

The jury looked at about 20 exhibits during its discussions Thursday. Most of them were financial records involving money given by a wealthy Texas lawyer. Prosecutors say John Edwards used the money as part of a plan he orchestrated to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the 2008 White House.

The jury also wanted to see a tape of Edwards' interview on ABC's Nightline. Edwards said during that interview he never asked anybody to pay any money.



The jury has previously looked at financial records involving an elderly heiress.

Edwards is charged with six felony counts related to illegal campaign contributions.
