Washington (CNN) — Former Democratic vice presidential nominee and two-time presidential candidate John Edwards was indicted by a federal grand jury Friday on six counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements, and violating campaign contribution laws.

If convicted on all counts, the former North Carolina senator would face up to 30 years in prison and a maximum fine of $1.5 million.

Edwards is scheduled to appear in federal court in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, at 2:30 p.m. ET, according to a Justice Department official.

Edwards’ attorney, Greg Craig, said his client will plead not guilty. Edwards “did not break the law and will mount a vigorous defense,” Craig declared in a written statement.
