Man Pleads Guilty To Extorting Redskins QB Robert Griffin III
A former Baylor basketball player pleaded guilty Thursday to trying to extort $1 million from Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III by threatening to expose damaging information, prosecutors said.
Richard Khamir Hurd, 26, pleaded guilty to one count of interstate communication of a threat related to extortion. He faces two to three years in prison when he's sentenced Nov. 21.
The U.S. attorney's office said Hurd, a former walk-on basketball player at the school where Griffin won the Heisman Trophy, contacted one of Griffin's agents in June with a demand of $1 million in order not to release information that would damage the quarterback's reputation.
Griffin was drafted No. 2 by the Redskins this year and signed a four-year deal for more than $21 million.
