News media initially said that there was a verdict in the Edwards case, but it proved to be somewhat of a false alarm. The jury reached a verdict on one count, but the court did not take the verdict and sent them back to continue with more deliberations in the hope that they would reach a verdict in the remaining five counts.
Nine days of deliberations - isn't that enough? And the jury did not even hear important defense evidence by former Federal Election Commissioner Scott E. Thomas.
