|Former Democratic presidential candidate, John Edwards, is free of campaign conspiracy charges.|
A jury of eight men and four women, who went back and forth deliberating the case for nine days, somehow couldn't come up with reason enough to convict the man who admitted today he did so much wrong.
In a statement after the verdict, Edwards admitted he was a sinner and said, "I did nothing illegal, but I did an "awful, awful lot" that was wrong and that no one else was responsible for."
Right now there are millions who sit on death row in American prisons, or who have received life sentences for less 'awful, awful' things.
Even people who don't pay their taxes, are at least fined.
