Judge Abraham Penn Jones ordered Andrew Young, the ex-aide of former Senator John Edwards, to turn over the sex tape on Friday. Young and his wife, Cheri, were at the Pittsboro, North Carolina court to contest a temporary restraining order forbidding them from disseminating the videotape.
The judge found the Youngs in civil contempt of court and ordered them to give the court the tape and other materials they may have by 2:00PM this coming Wednesday. If they fail to comply, the couple could be jailed.
According to court documents, the couple has said they possess “a video recording showing Senator Edwards engaged in sexual activities with a woman who, from all indications, is not his wife and who the Youngs believe to be Ms. Hunter, based upon her appearance.”
And the woman on the tape is visibly pregnant, which means the video might not be the one specified in the restraining order, because Rielle Hunter, Edwards’ former mistress, said that tape was created in September 2006. Which means, essentially, they don’t have to pay mind to the restraining order.
According to the couple, Hunter “abandoned the videotape in the trash at their home and made no effort to recover it until almost two years after she had left their home.”
No luck for the Youngs, no sex tape for us.
