Judge delays case on contempt for Edwards aide

HILLSBOROUGH, NC (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 could 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 postponed Monday’s hearing to a date to be determined so a new prosecutor can be assigned to the case.

The Youngs say they were complying with a secret federal subpoena when they turned over sealed evidence that included a deposition from Edwards.
