The latest from the trial. From the second hand reports I’ve heard from the trial, this appears to be a sound strategy. Very little of the prosecution case focused on whether Edwards had the specific intent to violate campaign finance laws. While I had expected the prosecution to have a relatively easy time of it before a jury given how slimy Edwards is, I would now put some money on an acquittal.
And as I’ve said, even if there is a conviction, Edwards will have strong legal grounds on appeal.
