Former Baylor basketball player Robert Hurd has pleaded guilty to trying to extort former Baylor and current Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III out of $1 million.
Back in June, Hurd contacted one of Griffin’s agents asking for the money in exchange for keeping quiet about information that would be damaging to Griffin’s reputation. The agent contacted the authorities, who set up a deal that paid Hurd $120,000 as long as he signed a non-disclosure agreement.
Hurd was promptly arrested and is now facing two-to-three years in prison.
He will be sentenced on November 21st.
Hurd was a walk-on at Baylor in 2004 and played for the Bears for four years.
