Hearing delayed in John Edwards sex tape caseContempt hearing in John Edwards sex tape case is delayed until next year
PITTSBORO, N.C. (AP) ' A North Carolina judge has delayed a hearing on whether a former aide to John Edwards should be held in contempt.
Andrew Young, his wife and their lawyers face jail time for providing confidential documents from a state civil case to federal officials prosecuting the two-time presidential candidate.
Former Edwards mistress Rielle Hunter sued the Youngs last year to recover personal items that include a purported sex tape she recorded with Edwards as he sought the White House.
Judge Michael Morgan delayed a planned Nov. 7 hearing until January to give more time for a federal judge to decide whether to quash subpoenas from the state court.
The Youngs say they were complying with a secret federal subpoena when they turned over sealed evidence that included a deposition from Edwards.
