Robert Joe Halderman Pleads Not Guilty

A top CBS producer pleaded not guilty Friday to charges of trying to blackmail funnyman David Letterman for $2 million.

Robert “Joe” Halderman appeared in court after prosecutors accused him of trying to shake down the “Late Show” host by threatening to reveal the comedian’s numerous affairs with female staffers.
