Two Accused of Attempting to Blackmail Stevie Wonder; Plead No Contest

Two people accused of attempting to blackmail Stevie Wonder have been freed from jail and ordered to stay away from the singer after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors.

Alpha Walker, who allegedly falsely claimed to be related to Wonder, was sentenced to 292 days behind bars after pleading no contest to a charge against him and he was freed on time already served.

Walker, 38, and his 38-year-old girlfriend Tamara Diaz had been charged with attempted extortion over claims they threatened to sell false information about the star unless he paid them $5 million. Diaz also entered a no contest plea and was sentenced to time served.

They have both been handed three years probation and ordered to stay away from Wonder, as well as his family and co-workers, while they are on probation.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge William C. Ryan also ordered Walker to attend mental health counselling sessions, while Diaz must complete 78 Narcotics Anonymous classes, according to the Los Angeles Times.
