Greensboro, N.C. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Former presidential candidate John Edwards is no longer in trouble with the law.
The U.S. Justice Department decided not to re-try Edwards on the remaining five counts of his campaign finance case.
Jurors found Edwards not guilty on one count, but failed to reach a verdict on the five others.
The government asked to dismiss those five counts and judge Catherine Eagles signed the order.
His case centered on allegations that he funneled millions in campaign contributions to his pregnant mistress, as his wife was dying of breast cancer.
