Will Prosecutors Retry John Edwards After Mistrial?
Famous politician John Edwards left a federal courthouse in North Carolina late Thursday afternoon thanking the jury and saying "I don't think God's through with me," after a federal judge declared a mistrial in his high-profile corruption case.
On today’s Special Report, Greta Van Susteren talked about whether or not she thinks this case will be tried again. Greta said, “It seems very unlikely
from the outside that the prosecution will do it. It’s very expensive to try cases, they just lost a big case, and the prosecution couldn’t even make the conspiracy count, that’s the easiest count for a prosecution to make.”
Greta foresees that the prosecution will politely go home on this case. She went on to say that most legal experts thought that the prosecution was really stretching from the beginning.
In discussing Edwards’ statement on the mistrial verdict, Greta said he did talk a lot, but he didn’t hurt himself legally.
