Edwards Aide May Face Jail Time

Andrew Young, author of the John Edwards tell-all, and his wife, Cheri, could spend 75 days behind bars for contempt of court. A judge is considering throwing the couple in jail because the former Edwards aide lied about how many people he had shown a video of his old boss having sex with his mistress. The Youngs, the judge said, were dishonest about how many copies of the tape they made or how many people got to watch it. After Andrew Young had said he showed the sex tape to three people, lawyers for Rielle Hunter produced an affidavit from Robert Draper, a ghost writer who worked for Edwards, saying Draper also saw the tape on Young's laptop, suggesting there was another digital copy in existence. Young's lawyers blamed a memory lapse.
