RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- An attorney for John Edwards says he plans to tell a court Friday that he's "innocent of all charges."

The attorney says the two-time presidential candidate "did not break the law," and that he'll mount a "vigorous defense."

A federal grand jury Friday charged Edwards with soliciting and covering up the secret spending of more than $925,000 to his his mistress and their baby during his 2008 campaign for the White House.

Edwards advisers say contributions weren't illegal.
