The man convicted of attempting to extort Robert Griffin III was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison Wednesday.
Richard Hurd, a former Baylor basketball player, tried to coax $1 million out of Griffin's agent in exchange for not releasing damaging information about the Washington Redskins rookie quarterback. Hurd, who previously dated Griffin's fiancée, Rebecca Liddicoat, was also fined $1,000.
"I messed up, and I'd like to apologize to my family," Hurd said during his hearing. "I've embarrassed myself and them as well."

No word on whether or not the prison that Hurd will spend the next year and a half in will be showing Griffin's professional debut in Texas Thursday against the Cowboys.
