A jury finds John Edwards not guilty on one count and is deadlocked on all other counts. A judge declares a mistrial on the other counts.
Prosecutors and attorneys for John Edwards returned to the courtroom about an hour after the judge told jurors to keep deliberating in the former presidential candidate's campaign fraud trial.
The ninth day of deliberations took a confusing turn after the judge mistakenly believed the jurors had reached a verdict on all six counts.
The jury instead told the judge it had a unanimous decision on only one charge involving money from wealthy heiress Rachel "Bunny" Mellon.
Edwards was accused of masterminding a plan to use money from Mellon and another wealthy donor to hide his pregnant mistress as he ran for president in 2008.
