So it turns out the jury reached a verdict but not the verdict in the John Edwards trial. Unanimity on only one count — no unanimity on the remaining 5 counts. It was not revealed how the jury came down on the one count, but it is reportedly the count having to do with whether Bunny Mellon’s payments for the keeping and hiding of Edwards’ mistress exceeded the FEC contribution limits. The judge, as is customary, sent the jury back to continue deliberating.
