David Letterman Alleged Extortionist Cops Plea

3/9/2010 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

David Letterman's alleged extortionist, Robert Halderman, will plead guilty this afternoon to extortion, according to Halderman's lawyers who spoke with TMZ.

David Letterman

Halderman -- who allegedly tried to squeeze $2 million out of Letterman last year in return for not blowing the lid off his "Late Show" sexual liaisons -- pled not guilty to one felony charge of attempted grand larceny in the first degree back in October.

The New York Daily News and the New York Post are reporting Halderman's plea will score him a 6 month jail sentence, followed by 4 1/2 years probation and 1,000 hours of community service.

Letterman's weenie is old old and who cares about the lawsuit?

Retire old Farmer from Indiana. You walk like a corn cob is up your butt.

Dave Letterman is now a caricature of himself. Time for new blood!
Take that bald headed dwarf with you. There may be an opening on the Roloff Farm during Pumpkin Season.

You injured Biff during your "bit" that only YOU thought would be interesting.

Hop on one of Ted Turner's Buffalo in Montana and ride off into the sunset! The sooner the better!

He got off too easy. He knew what he was doing and it backfired in is own face. He should have longer jail time.

The guy was a producer from "48 Hours" at CBS, he knew exactly what he was doing, having followed criminal cases for years. David Letterman handled it a lot better than most public figures would have done.
btw, Dave stood up for Coco too.

That is a light sentence for him.
The 1000 hours community service should be having to sit right infront of the Katie Couric anchor desk everyday.

Halderman's going to jail for being stupid. He should have hired Gloria Alred and had her get the $2 million.
