WASHINGTON -- Threatened with imprisonment for failing to testify, the wife of Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard is reluctantly answering prosecutors' questions about her alleged role in a church conspiracy to steal government files.

But three other high-ranking church members refused to testify Monday at the trial of two scientologists, despite an appeals court ruling earlier in the day upholding an earlier civil contempt citation against them.

U.S. District Judge Aubrey Robinson ordered the three -- Richard Weigand of Van Nuys, Calif., Gregory Willardson of Beverly Hills and Henning Heldt of Los Angeles -- to each spend 30 days in jail or face a $30,000 fine for criminal contempt.
