Judge declares mistrial in Edwards corruption case

A victory for former U.S. Senator and Presidential candidate John Edwards. A judge has declared a mistrial in his federal corruption trial.

After nine days of deliberations, a jury found Edwards "not guilty" on just one of six counts.

They agreed Edwards did not accept campaign contributions in excess of the legal limit.

The jury was dead-locked on the remaining five counts, forcing the judge to declare the mistrial.
