Television producer Joe Halderman, who spent four months at Rikers Island after he pleaded guilty to blackmailing David Letterman, says Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s life in jail will be a far cry from his $3,000-a-night Sofitel Hotel suite.
Joe Halderman has been a journalist for more than thirty years. He was a producer/writer for CBS News' 48 Hours when arrested in 2009 in the Letterman case. Halderman pled guilty and was sentenced to six months on Riker's, serving four months with "good time." Halderman lives in Connecticut and is now a writer and a teacher.
