The jury in the John Edwards trial has found the former presidential candidate not guilty on count 3 while passing a note to the judge that said they were deadlocked on the five other counts. The judge ruled a mistrial on the other five counts, and the jury is said to be released in the near future. A source told the Associated Press Thursday afternoon that it was unlikely the government would seek another trial against Edwards. Edwards had been charged with six counts of misappropriating campaign funds, which could put him in jail for up to 30 years and have a maximum fine of $1.5 million. Edwards had been accused of using $1 million in campaign funds to cover up his affair and love child with Rielle Hunter.
