Former 'Sex Rehab' Star

I Didn't EXTORT Anyone!!!

The former "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew" star who's accused of attempting to extort a mystery victim in a threatening letter appeared in an L.A. courtroom today and pled not guilty to the crime ... TMZ has learned. 

TMZ broke the story ... Duncan Roy -- who directed the 2002 indy hit "AKA" -- was arrested last week for felony attempted extortion.

It's still unclear who Roy allegedly tried to extort -- and what he allegedly demanded.

Today, Roy's lawyer argued that as a movie maker with two projects in the works, Roy should be granted bail so that his employees can keep working.  The judge obliged -- and set Roy's bail at $35,000 ... though Roy has yet to be released.

Roy is due back in court December 2nd.

Duncan is still in jail for a reason. His next court date isn't until 1/6/2012, and none of his dear rich friends have put $35,000 up to bail his fat ass out. and he isn't accepting any visitors because he knows he is guilty as ****. Stasha your friend is a criminal, it's time to accept this fact.

Thanks Jeff for the update. Good news that he is still in jail. Duncey is a third-rate "celeb" and a first-rate liar and thief.

I worked for Duncan last year for nearly a month, and I went in on this with all best intentions. As a fellow 12 stepper, I give a wide berth to those with character defects. That being said, Duncan is one of the most deranged and sadistic people I've ever met and working for him was one the worst experiences of my life. I have plenty of stories and first hand experience with him with He talks a good talk at meetings, but he is an impostor when it comes to real life. Trust me, from person who really wanted to like him, for those of you who haven't dealt with him, or have been somehow bedazzled by smooth rap, his bad reputation is richly deserved.
