RALEIGH, N.C. — John Edwards' criminal trial, which was scheduled to start in January, has been pushed back to the end of the month, according to a court filing.
The former Democratic presidential candidate was charged in June with using more than $1 million in under-the-table payments from political supporters to hide his pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter during his 2008 run. He's also charged with helping to falsify campaign finance reports to cover up the payments. He has pleaded not guilty to six felony and misdemeanor counts.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys had wanted the trial to start two weeks later, on Feb. 13.
