Michigan Jury Convicts Couple Trying to Extort John Stamos

Stamos Case

July 13: Defense attorney intern Ted Greeley, left, and lead attorney Sarah Henderson, second from right, walk with clients Allison Coss and Scott Sippola to the federal courthouse for the second day of a trial in U.S. District Court in Marquette, Mich.

MARQUETTE, Mich. -- A jury in Michigan's Upper Peninsula has convicted a couple in the attempted extortion of actor John Stamos after a trial full of allegations about cocaine, strippers and unflattering photos.

Federal prosecutors say Allison Coss and Scott Sippola demanded $680,000 from the "ER" and "Full House" star or they would sell six-year-old embarrassing pictures to the tabloids. The FBI says there were no bad photos.

Coss and Sippola were found guilty 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.
