GREENSBORO – Forty-seven of 185 jurors were removed from the pool in the John Edwards campaign finance trial Monday for cause at the request of attorneys for Edwards and the government.
Judge Catherine Eagles will begin oral questioning of the remaining jurors Tuesday.
Eagles plans on bringing in the remaining 138 in groups of 12 and she hopes to complete the questioning of the first four panels by the end of the day. Eagles says she'll close the courtroom doors for confidential matters, which she anticipates based on questionnaires jurors completed last week.
So far, jury selection is on pace to be completed by the end of the week.
If Edwards is convicted of all six charges, he faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine.
Opening statements are scheduled to get underway Monday.
