Even though he was nominated for an Emmy, Robert "Joe" Halderman, the news producer who went to jail for trying to blackmail David Letterman, won’t attend the awards ceremony later this month, reports The Hollywood Reporter

Halderman "wants to return to a quiet and productive life," said his attorney, Gerald Shargel, in explaining that he won’t be attending the 31st News and Documentary Emmy Awards, which are being held on Sept. 27 at Lincoln Center.

Halderman was released from jail in early September after serving four months of a six-month sentence.
