Judge Andrew Napolitano: I Don’t See How John Edwards Avoids Jail Time

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Judge Andrew Napolitano spoke with Martha MacCallum earlier today about the developments in the criminal case against former presidential candidate John Edwards. MacCallum described it as an “incredible fall from grace” and the Judge felt that the government’s case is so strong, regardless of a plea or trial, Edwards is likely to be behind bars for at least some time.

Andrew Napolitano: “He’s facing two five-year charges. The evidence of guilt on both is overwhelming. He’s facing ten years in jail. In our federal system you serve 85% of the time. You’re talking eight and a half years in jail for someone who ran for President twice.”
