It was a pleasant surprise and triumph by Sean and his TV staff to bring together eight of the jury members in the John Edwards trial last Friday on ‘Hannity.’ While jurors had appeared on other networks throughout the day, Sean’s was the only show that had the astounding number of eight all together in one studio. Even after the final decision was made, the jury still had to deal with the media’s fascination and constant inquiry on the details that were not exposed during the trial. After a taxing day, the eight individuals sat down with Sean to discuss their true feelings and behind the scenes of what really went on during deliberations; including one story the media honed in on regarding one of the jurors flirting with John Edwards himself. She, along with the others, gave us the real story. The accused juror, Denise Spight, says she is just a naturally friendly person and the media misconstrued her bubbly personality. The other jurors agreed and said the accusations were completely false; Denise and her husband had a good laugh about the whole ordeal.
On the show Sean got out of the eight members that half of them believe John Edwards was guilty and the other half declared not guilty. One juror, Cindy Aquaro, expressed why she felt he was guilty, saying “He knew about it, but there just wasn’t the evidence there to prove it”. Others like Denise Spight, mentioned above, did not agree with Ms. Aquaro, stating that “there was evidence that proved it was a campaign contribution”. Regardless of whether the jurors felt he was guilty or not, majority of the group felt compassion for Edwards and thought he finally took full responsibility for his dishonorable actions during his press conference after the final verdict was released.
