JUDGE ORDERS EDWARDS AIDE BACK TO COURT FOR SEX TAPE

A North Carolina judge has ordered John Edwards' former aide Andrew Young and his wife Cheri back into court to answer why they have not returned the alleged Rielle Hunter sex tape.

RadarOnline.com reports Judge Abraham Jones issued a second Show Cause Order against the Youngs, ordering them back to his North Carolina court on Friday.

 Judge Jones will ask why they should not be held in contempt of court for failing to comply with the previous restraining order obtained by Hunter when they next appear in court on Friday.

Hunter, Edwards' former mistress and the mother of their 2-year old daughter Frances Quinn, went to court to prevent Young from disseminating the tape to promote his book about the scandal-plagued politician.

In a sworn affidavit, Hunter claimed Young and his wife had stolen the tape (along with two others) from a  hat box she had hid them in at a former North Carolina residence they had access to.

Young in a bombshell 20/20 interview last Friday told ABC that he wrote in his book The Politician that he and Cherie found the tape among the detritus Hunter had left behind when she vacated the rental home paid for with hush money.
