MARQUETTE, Mich. -- 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.
