 letterman Man Sentenced Over Letterman Blackmail Released

(New York, NY)  —  The former television producer who tried to blackmail late-night talk-show host David Letterman is out of jail. 

The New York City Department of Corrections says Robert “Joe” Halderman was released from jail this morning.  He served four months of his six-month sentence. 

The 52-year-old Halderman had admitted he tried to extort two-million dollars from Letterman by saying he would release information about the late-night funnyman’s office affairs if Letterman didn’t pay up.
