Edwards, 58, is smiling broadly in the picture, after he plead not guilty to six felony charges on charges he illegally used campaign contributions during his run for president to cover-up his affair with Rielle Hunter.

EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENT: John Edwards Conditions Of Release

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the former senator was released on his own recognizance without having to post bail, although he was required to take a urine test.

At court with his daughter Cate, he read a statement proclaiming his innocence.

“There’s no question that I’ve done wrong and I take full responsibility for having done wrong. And I will regret for the rest of my life the pain and the harm that I have caused to others but I did not break the law and I have never, ever thought I was breaking the law.”

At the time of his affair with Reille, with whom he fathered a child, he was married to his wife, Elizabeth.  She tragically passed away last December after a long battle with cancer.

Edwards will be back in court on July 11, 2011.
