A Bettendorf, Iowa woman was sentenced Thursday to home confinement for threatening to release damaging photographs of a cast member of the TLC show "19 Kids and Counting."
Teresa Hunt of Bettendorf was sentenced to one year of supervised release that includes four months of home confinement and a mental health evaluation.
Hunt pleaded guilty in July to one count of extortion. Prosecutors say Hunt told TLC's parent company she had damaging photographs of a cast member that would reveal an inappropriate relationship with a Missouri singer. She told Discovery Communications she would release the photos if the company didn't pay her $10,000.
The cast member and singer have denied any romantic relationship, calling the plot laughable.
