Former U.S. Senator John Edwards smiles in his mug shot after pleading not guilty for conspiracy and campaign law violation. His mug shot was obtained through a FOIA request. The plea came after a federal grand jury indicted him on six counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements and violating campaign contribution laws. A grand jury has been investigating whether money given to support Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, by benefactors of Edwards should have been considered campaign donations, a contention Edwards' team has disputed.
