Gerald Shargel, a veteran criminal defense attorney who is representing the CBS producer accused of trying to blackmail David Letterman, said today that he plans to argue that the late-night host committed sexual harassment if the case goes to trial. "I have evidence of it, and I intend to share that in a courtroom," said Shargel, who is representing "48 Hours Mystery" producer Robert Joel Halderman, who prosecutors say demanded $2 million from Letterman in order to keep quiet about relationships the comic had with female staffers.

A veteran CBS News producer -- whose actions prompted late-night host David Letterman to admit he had had sexual liaisons with members of his staff -- pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted grand larceny and will go to jail for six months. The deal accepted by Robert Joel Halderman brought to a close an embarrassing chapter for Letterman, whose on-air confession in the fall triggered scrutiny of his behavior behind the scenes. Halderman, whose former girlfriend was a longtime assistant to the late-night comedian, was accused of demanding $2 million in exchange for a screenplay treatment he wrote about affairs Letterman had had with female employees.

Robert Joel Halderman did not think he was breaking the law when he allegedly demanded $2 million from David Letterman in exchange for the rights to a screenplay treatment about the talk show host's affairs with female staffers, a lawyer for the CBS News producer said Tuesday. In a motion to dismiss the case filed in New York Supreme Court, defense attorney Gerald Shargel claimed Halderman's actions did not meet the state's definition of extortion because he had a right to sell his story idea.

Good thing it was Woody Harrelson, right? Thursday night, David Letterman shocked America with the revelation that he had recently been the victim of alleged blackmail. The suspect, later identified as Robert Joel Halderman, a producer on "48 Hours," had been arrested and oh, by the way, his information was correct. Letterman had indeed slept with women who worked for his show. Thanks for your patience and next up, my first guest . . . Just imagine if it had been Téa Leoni or, perish the thought, Jennifer Aniston.

A chagrined David Letterman apologized to his staff Monday and noted that his wife has been "horribly hurt" by the news that he slept with women who worked for him on CBS' "Late Show" in the years leading up to their marriage. "If you hurt a person and it's your responsibility, you try to fix it," he said on the program. "Let me tell you, folks, I got my work cut out for me." Letterman struck a notably more contrite tone than on Thursday, when he revealed that a man had allegedly sought to extort $2 million from him to keep quiet about the comic's affairs.

A New York Supreme Court judge on Tuesday upheld the indictment of a longtime CBS News producer charged with trying to extort late-night host David Letterman, rejecting the defense's effort to dismiss the case. Attorneys for Robert Joel Halderman, who is accused of demanding $2 million in exchange for a screenplay treatment he wrote about affairs Letterman had with female staffers, had sought to get the court to drop the charge of attempted grand larceny in the first degree. Defense attorney Gerald Shargel argued that Halderman's actions did not meet the state's definition of extortion because he had a right to sell his story idea.

Although it had its premiere at the Aldeburgh Festival, Benjamin Britten's setting of the late-medieval miracle play "Noye's Fludde" does not require festival forces. All it really needs is . . . well, a large and capable children's chorus is the place to start, and the Los Angeles Children's Chorus offered a cherishably light, bright and motion-filled production of the one-act opera this weekend at Pasadena Presbyterian Church.
