A huge victory for John Edwards -- prosecutors will NOT be retrying the former Presidential candidate after the judge declared a mistrial in his campaign fraud case ... meaning he's officially in the clear.
Last month, Edwards was found "not guilty" of accepting illegal campaign contributions -- one of six campaign fraud charges stemming from his 2008 run for President. The judge declared a mistrial on the remaining counts after jurors deadlocked.
It was unclear if federal prosecutors would seek to retry Edwards -- but today, they filed an order dismissing the remaining charges ... meaning there will be no retrial.
The remaining charges included 3 additional counts of receiving illegal campaign contributions, one count of conspiracy, and one count of making false statements.
Edwards had been accused of using nearly $1 million in campaign contributions to hide his mistress Rielle Hunter and their lovechild from the public.
