John Edwards’ Brother Sentenced to 60 Days in Arapahoe County Jail


Former Democratic VP candidate John Edwards’ brother, Wesley Blake Edwards, is coming to a hoosegow near us on May 10. A 40-year-old electrician living in North Carolina, the younger Edwards got a DUI ticket in Colorado in 1993 and never appeared. After his brother became John Kerry’s running mate, the ticket surfaced. He pleaded guilty today in Arapahoe County to the lesser charge of driving while impaired and got 60 days with work release. Why so stiff? It was his fourth alcohol-related driving conviction, and his license had been suspended after the third.
