Producer Guilty in David Letterman Case

Producer Guilty in David Letterman Case
Tuesday, March 9, 2010 - 12:37pm

A TV producer has pleaded guilty to trying to shake down David Letterman over the comic's sexual affairs.

Robert "Joe" Halderman entered his guilty plea to attempted grand larceny Tuesday in a Manhattan court.

He was charged last fall with demanding $2 million to keep quiet about Letterman's love life.

The case spurred the late-night TV icon to tell viewers he'd had affairs with women on his staff.

Halderman's lawyers initially said he was just offering to sell Letterman a thinly veiled screenplay about the comedian's life.

Halderman is a producer for CBS' "48 Hours Mystery."
