The jurors in the John Edwards trial told network news stations that prosecutor simply didn’t have enough evidence to convict.
The Wall Street Journal reported that three jurors told NBC’s Matt Lauer the evidence was lacking. Jury foreman David Recchion singled out prosecution witness Andrew Young as a big problem in the prosecution’s case
“That was probably the key part of the miss for the prosecution,” he said.

All three said they thought Edwards was guilty of something, but none raised their hand when asked if they thought Edwards was a bad guy.
