GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - John Edwards and his defense team are in a federal court in North Carolina to talk with prosecutors about evidence and motions.

The two-time Democratic presidential candidate and former U.S. senator from North Carolina was charged earlier this month after a two-year investigation into whether he used campaign contributions to cover up an extramarital affair. A trial is set for July but is likely to be pushed back.

Edwards arrived at the courthouse late Tuesday morning in Greensboro. He did not comment other than to say "good morning."

He has pleaded not guilty to four counts of illegal campaign contributions and charges of conspiracy and making false statements.
