NEW YORK, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- The former New York CBS television producer convicted of trying to blackmail "Late Show" host David Letterman was released from prison Thursday.

Robert "Joe" Halderman, who pleaded guilty to the blackmail accusation, was let go early for good behavior after serving four months of his six-month sentence, NY1 reported.

Halderman admitted to attempting to blackmail Letterman for $2 million over extramarital affairs he had with staff members, NY1 said.

Halderman's lawyer said he is happy to be out of prison and is looking for a job.
