The jury in John Edwards' campaign corruption trial is set for a sixth day of deliberations Friday.

Prosecutors say Edwards used nearly $1 million from donors in a plan to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.

Edwards is charged with six felony counts related to illegal campaign contributions. If convicted on all counts, he faces up to 30 years in prison, though legal experts predict a term of less than five years.
