5/4/2010 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Letterman's extortionist is headed to the slammer -- Robert Halderman was just sentenced to six months behind bars for trying to squeeze $2 million out the "Late Show" host.


Halderman -- who pled guilty to attempted grand larceny back in March -- just appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court in handcuffs.

Halderman will also have to serve 1000 hours of community service and will be on probation for five years.

That's enough time for him to become the object of a man's desire.

Adulterous Dave should do at least 1000 hours community service to atone to his wife. Just my thoughts...

6 months is a joke. That's worth the risk for a 2 million dollar payday!

Really if you think about it he didn't do anything that Gloria Allred does EVERYDAY. The only difference is Gloria is a "certified and liscensed liar/lawyer" and he isn't. The real crime here is he is going to jail for practicing law without a liscense.

He should have hired that ugly tawt alred or the mob, (both are the same at this point) and it would have been legal.
