SAN ANTONIO (AP) -An 82-year-old Texas women who pleaded guilty to trying to extort $2 million from Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr was sentenced to one year probation.
A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Ruby Y. Young to not have any contact with Starr or his family or contact the media about an alleged relationship she had with the two-time Super Bowl MVP in 1960.
Court documents show Young sent a 3 1/2 page letter to Starr in October 2006 that read, in part, ``And now, the time has come for you to pay - to pay for the many injuries you caused me.''
The letter continued, ``I am going to be vindicated one way or another. You know very well that any and all tabloids, TV news casters such as ABC, CBS, NBC would simply devour this story.''
Young pleaded guilty in June.
Starr, 73, who played at Alabama, was MVP of the first two Super Bowls for the Green Bay Packers.
