The jury who will decide the fate of former vice presidential candidate John Edwards finished their sixth day of deliberations on Friday, but one alternate juror is garnering a lot of attention in the courthouse – for flirting with Edwards!
The alternate juror, described in some reports as “an attractive young woman with jet black hair,” has been spotted smiling at Edwards in the court and flipping her hair in what seems to be a flirtatious manner.
The drawing of the alternate juror from the court sketch artist obtained by RadarOnline.com shows the woman in a revealing red shirt. She wore the sexy red blouse to court on Friday, with a single spaghetti strap that exposed her right shoulder.
The alternate juror apparently “smiles,” at John. “He smiles at her. She giggles. He blushes,” according to First Coast News.
John Edwards is on trial for the nearly $1 million in payments that prosecutors say were campaign contributions that he used to cover up his affair and love child with Rielle Hunter, which he had while his wife Elizabeth Edwards was sick with cancer.
There are 12 jurors currently discussing the evidence they saw during the almost month-long trial, but the four alternates are not with them and they have been exhibiting odd behavior for the last two days.
On Thursday the four all wore yellow shirts and then on Friday all four of them were wearing red shirts, and they enter the court each day giggling with each other, which has caused a commotion in the courtroom but so far has not earned a comment from the lawyers or the judge.
As for the flirting between Edwards and the alternate juror, Edwards did something that was a little odd on Friday – he wore a red tie that matched the color of the alternate jurors’ shirts!
