Accused Letterman Extortionist Pleads Not Guilty

10/2/2009 4:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Halderman -- the man accused of trying to extort David Letterman -- has just pled not guilty to the felony charge of attempted grand larceny in the first degree.


Halderman was wearing blue jeans, a striped button-up shirt and a blazer. He is in handcuffs.

The DA is asking for his bail to be set at $500,000. They say Halderman's actions were ones of "desperation" and they are "alarming and dangerous."

His defense, on the other hand, wants bail to be set at $100k. They claim he is not a flight risk.

UPDATE: His bail was set at $200,000 bond.

On the matter of "The Extortionist Plot"
Robert Halderman made a huge mistake...
What a Knuckle - Head... The Plot Thicken's!!!
If I was in his shoes I'd asked David Letterman to Hook-up The
Upper - Room issue... Meaning, he should have indulged in Letterman's shopping around same techniqe for a new women.
The "DON" swavey stradegy especially if this is all over his X-Lover... Really, Get Over It...

This guy is a well respected producer!

I assume Whoopi will be out supporting his release based on what an artist he is and that this wasn't extortion-extortion.

Regina's probably thinking,

"Oh great. Now I gotta go find another girl for Dave to have sex with."


(Speaking for the Defense....at least he didn't wig out and kill his kids as some do when faced with economic ruin.

The only interesting thing about this is that David himself calls politicians who cheat on their wives and long term girlfriends all sorts of sleazy names.
I hope other do the same with him.

ewww, I am also so disappointed in David Letterman. Also if one of the women involved is who i believe it to be, she is no better, appears she likes older men, possinly who can further her career.

Dave, what were you thinking??
