Rielle Hunter Gets Immunity

John Edwards’s former mistress, Rielle Hunter, has been granted immunity in his trial, according to North Carolina TV station WRAL on Thursday. The former presidential candidate has been accused of conspiring to violate campaign-finance laws by using $1 million from campaign donors to cover up his affair—and child—with Hunter. Jury selection in Edwards trial is expected to begin on April 12, and the opening arguments will kick off on April 23. The trial had already been postponed due to Edwards’s life-threatening heart condition.
