A judge declared Friday that a former aide to John Edwards was in contempt of court, demanding that he turn over a “personal” videotape being sought by Edwards’ former mistress.
Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones reprimanded Andrew Young in a court hearing Friday but declined to put him in custody. The contempt ruling will be lifted if Young turns over a videotape “of a personal nature” and other items by Wednesday, Jones said.
“These items are to be produced and turned over to the court,” Jones said. “The court will put them under lock and key — and under seal — until the lawsuit is resolved.”
