John Edwards’ Serious Heart Condition Delays Criminal Trial

Ex-presidential hopeful John Edwards has found a way to delay his pending federal trial on alleged campaign violations.

The Associated Press reports that a North Carolina fed judge on Friday delayed his January trial date until at least March 26 after his cardiologist sent two letters to the judge citing Edward’s life-threatening heart condition that will require surgery in February.

“The public has an interest in a speedy trial, and this case has already been continued twice,” U.S. District Catherine Eagles said, according to the AP. “Ordinarily, I would try to manage something like this. But clearly there are some limitations on Mr. Edwards due to real and serious health issues.”

Authorities have accused Edwards of using roughly $1 million in donations to hide his pregnant mistress during his 2008 presidential bid.
