Letterman Extortionist Tossed in Clink

Robert "Joe" Halderman, the TV producer who attempted to extort $2 million from David Letterman last year, was sentenced today and began his six-month prison term. He'll be out in November, though, which means he could theoretically finish his planned Letterman movie in time for Oscar consideration. [AP]
