Ex Edwards Aide Avoids Jail Again In Sex Tape Flap

A former aide to past presidential candidate John Edwards has avoided jail again in a dispute over a tape that allegedly shows Edwards and his lover in a sexual encounter.

Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones ruled Friday that Andrew Young was not in contempt of court for his accounting of how he handled items that Edwards mistress Rielle Hunter is seeking.

The North Carolina judge had threatened to jail Young earlier this week and said he was troubled by a series of conflicting statements that Young has made under oath. Young was back in court Friday to offer more details to the judge.

Hunter has sued Young for invasion of privacy, seeking the return of items including the tape.

    Maybe Ewards can get a job in Adult Movies. I bet he is a Obama voter. I am sure with one Ex Pres.Clinton call Edwards gets off the hook. Edwards should have the camera turned off?. Obama could give him a job. Hey he is not a tax cheat.
