HILLSBOROUGH, NC (AP) -- A North Carolina prosecutor won't file perjury charges against a former aide to John Edwards over changes in his testimony in a dispute over a sex tape said to show the past presidential candidate with his lover.
District Attorney Jim Woodall said Monday he decided against charging Andrew Young with perjury for his testimony during a series of hearings last winter about the location of the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter sex tape. The story was first reported by The Herald-Sun of Durham. Hunter has sued Young for invasion of privacy to recover the tape.
Woodall said he could change his decision if new evidence surfaced raising doubts about Young's testimony in court.
Young attorney Robert Elliot of Winston-Salem said he expected Woodall's decision because Young has always told the truth about the case.
