Lawyer: New alleged Polanksi sex victim to talk

Roman PolanskiA woman who claims to be a "victim of Roman Polanski's sexually predatory conduct" will appear before reporters in Los Angeles on Friday, attorney Gloria Allred said.

Allred said she would explain later in the day why her client waited several decades to come forward. She did not say whether the woman was underage at the time of alleged offense.

Polanski's defense lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Oscar-winning director pleaded guilty to having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977 but fled to Europe before he was sentenced.

He left the country after learning that the judge might not go along with the short jail term he expected to get in exchange for his guilty plea.

Michaels and his band will take the stage at the Hard Rock Casino just over a month after he suffered a massive brain hemorrhage that his doctor said nearly killed him, said the source, who declined to be named because the source was not authorized to speak on the matter.

Former CBS producer starts jail time for Letterman extortion

Robert Joel Halderman knew the jail time a New York judge would give him Tuesday when he was sentenced for trying to blackmail comedian David Letterman about the "Late Show" host's sexual affairs.

The former CBS news producer admitted guilt in March to attempted second-degree grand larceny in exchange for a promised sentence of six months in jail, five years' probation and 1,000 hours of community service.

After formal sentencing in Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, Halderman was escorted to jail to begin serving his sentence, according to a spokeswoman for the district attorney.

Bret MichaelsBret Michaels has been released from the Phoenix, Arizona, hospital where he has been treated since suffering a massive brain hemorrhage 12 days ago, his neurosurgeon said Tuesday.

Doctors "are feeling pretty confident" that Michaels will not suffer another hemorrhage and will fully recover, Dr. Joseph Zabramski said.

The rock singer and reality TV star faces four to six weeks of rest before he can resume a normal schedule, the doctor said.

His road manager announced last week that Michaels might be able to resume his concert tour on May 26, but his doctor said he asked Michaels to take it easy.
