SAN ANTONIO (AP) -An 81-year-old Texas woman has pleaded guilty to trying to extort $2 million from Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr.
Ruby Y. Young of Kerrville pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court. She received a probated sentence and agreed not to have any contact with Starr or his family.
Young was accused of mailing letters to the 73-year-old Starr last year with the intent to extort money under ``a threat to injure the reputation'' of the Green Bay Packers' two-time Super Bowl MVP. The letters threatened to reveal an alleged relationship they had nearly 50 years ago.
Young's attorney said his client had to plead guilty because of the strong evidence against her.
``Given the facts and the recommendation of probation, there's no other choice,'' Guy James Gray said. ``The proof was plain and simple.''
