Raleigh, NC-- Former presidential contender John Edwards is setting out on the speaking circuit.
The former U.S. senator and 2004 Democratic vice-presidential nominee from North Carolina is scheduled to appear June 6 at a private retreat in Orlando, Fla., for lawyer clients of the marketing firm PMP. Edwards has remained largely out of public view since his May 2012 acquittal on one charge of campaign finance fraud.
A judge declared a mistrial on five other criminal counts after jurors couldn't agree if Edwards illegally used campaign money to hide his pregnant mistress as he ran for president in 2008.
An itinerary says Edwards will speak for about 45 minutes as part of a program titled "Historic Trials of the Century." Edwards earned millions as a personal injury lawyer before entering politics.
