GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- As jurors in the John Edwards campaign corruption trial gets set for a fifth day of deliberations, legal= experts caution it's still too early to read too much into their discussions.
The former presidential candidate is charged with six felony counts related to campaign finance violations. If convicted on all counts, Edwards faces a maximum sentence of up to 30 years in prison, though legal experts predict a term of less than five years would be more likely.
The group of eight men and four women mostly come from middle-class backgrounds, including a retired fireman, a special education teacher, a plumber, a retired railroad engineer and two mechanics. There are also jurors with strong financial acumen, including a corporate vice president and a retired accountant.
