John Edwards Jail Time

John Edwards was handed a major victory today regarding the remaining charges against him. Read on for details!

It’s been a bumpy ride for John Edwards. The disgraced former senator faced six felony charges stemming from the 2008 presidential race in which he was accused of using $1 million in campaign funds to hide his extramarital affair with campaign videographer Rielle Hunter. Last month, when he was found not guilty on one charge, and a mistrial was declared on the other five, it was unclear whether prosecutors would want to pursue a retrial of the remaining charges.

But today, TMZ reports that John has been guaranteed his freedom as the prosecutors have filed an order to dismiss the remaining charges, making it official: there will be no retrial.

The remaining charges included 3 additional counts of receiving illegal campaign contributions, one count of conspiracy, and one count of making false statements.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are YOU shocked that John has been awarded this victory? Let us know!
