Jury chosen in John Stamos extortion trial
MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) -- A jury has been chosen in the trial of a Michigan couple charged with conspiring to extort money from actor John Stamos in exchange for photos they claimed showed the actor with cocaine and strippers.
Testimony is expected to begin later Monday in federal court in Marquette, Mich. The trial is expected to last two or three days.
Allison Coss and Scott Sippola are accused of trying to squeeze $680,000 out of the "Full House" and "ER" star.
Federal prosecutors say the photos don't exist but the couple claims the photos were lost or destroyed during an FBI raid.
Defense attorneys say the couple offered Stamos a chance to buy the pictures but that it wasn't extortion.
