EX­TOR­TION CASE CLOSED

Austin American-Statesman - - FRIDAY BRIEFING -

A jury has con­victed a Michi­gan cou­ple of con­spir­ing to ex­tort $680,000 from ac­tor

John Sta­mos by threat­en­ing to sell pho­tos of him with strip­pers and co­caine to the tabloids. Fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors say

Al­li­son Coss and Scott Sip­pola de­manded the money but didn’t ac­tu­ally have any un­flat­ter­ing pho­tos of the for­mer “Full House” and “ER” star.

Coss and Sip­pola were con­victed Thurs­day of con­spir­acy and us­ing e-mail to threaten a per­son’s rep­u­ta­tion.

Coss met Sta­mos in Florida in 2004 when she was 17. Sta­mos de­nied us­ing drugs.
