Edwards, mistress could still be called to testify

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Attorneys for John Edwards are
indicating their case is winding down, but they are not yet saying
whether they will call the former presidential candidate or his
mistress to testify.
Defense attorneys said they would make a decision later Tuesday
on whether to call Edwards and Rielle Hunter. It was not clear when
they would make that decision public.
Testimony ended Tuesday for the day with the trial still
focusing on financial records.
Edwards is accused of masterminding a plan to use about $1
million from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he
ran for the White House in 2008. Edwards has pleaded not guilty to
six counts of campaign finance violations. He faces up to 30 years
in prison if convicted.
