Letterman Extorter Pleads Guilty


Robert "Joe" Haldeman, the Emmy-winning CBS producer who sought $2 million from David Letterman in exchange for suppressing details of his romantic staff liaisons, is expected to pleaded guilty today to attempted extortion. As part of a plea agreement, Halderman will serve six months in prison, four and a half years' probation and perform 1,000 hours of community service. Suggestions for that are welcome in the comments, though keep in mind he probably won't be teaching any underprivileged aspiring screenwriters. Anything else though... sky's the limit. [NYT]
