Judge threatens to sanction Iowa photographer

An Iowa newspaper photographer says that because a judge threatened sanctions, he won't publish a picture of a mayor charged with sexual abuse.

Judge Joel Dalrymple warned Jerry Blue and his newspaper, the Fayette County Union, they could be held in contempt if any picture of the mayor or judge were published.

Blue says he's heartbroken he cannot run a picture of deputies transporting Oelwein Mayor Jason Manus to Monday's court appearance.

Dalrymple says Blue didn't comply with newly revised rules requiring photographers to get permission to take pictures inside courthouses.

Blue says he's long taken pictures in the courthouse — not the courtroom itself — without permission.  He says media representatives advised him that running the picture probably would put him in contempt.
