Texas woman, 82, get probation for trying to extort Bart Starr
SAN ANTONIO -- 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
Court documents show Young sent a 3½ 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.
