Update (5:21 p.m. EDT): "While I do not belive I did anything illegal… I did an awful, awful lot that is wrong," Edwards said outside the courtroom, turning on the campaign charm after staying mum during the trial. "If I want to find the person who’s responsible for my sins, I don’t have to go any further than the mirror. It’s me and it’s me alone." He thanked the jury -- "those jurors were an exemplar of the kind of thing juries are supposed to do" -- and he thanked his parents and children, including Quinn, who he had with Rielle Hunter, and "who I love more than any of you can imagine, who I am so close to and so, so grateful for." He didn't mention Hunter.
Update (4:40 p.m. EDT): This is how it ends: The judge declared a mistrial.
Update (4:20 p.m. EDT): ABC's Jake Tapper Tweets that the jury has just announced it found Edwards not guilty on count three (that's illegally accepting the campaign contribution from Bunny Mellon in 2008) and hung on all other counts. The jury and attorneys had filed back into court just about an hour after the Jury's false start, in which it said it had reached a verdict but when the judge realized that was just on one count, ordered jurors back to deliberate more.
