The news trucks are lined up on Market Street around the corner onto Eugene Street in anticipation of a verdict in the John Edwards trial:
Jurors will begin deliberating this morning. Raleigh attorney and former federal prosecutor Kieran Shanahan, who has been sitting in on the trial, said the jury could render a verdict as soon as today.
“Often when a jury gets a case late in the week, momentum builds among the jurors to finish the deliberations and render a verdict by Friday afternoon,” Shanahan said. “That being said, due to there being six counts and the complexity of the case, the jury may not reach a verdict until next week.”
