Pellicano Scandal Chapter Ends Today: Hollywood P.I. Sentenced To 15 Years

Anthony Pellicano, the wiretapping Hollywood private eye turned convicted felon, finally found out his fate. U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer gave him a prison sentence of 15 years and ordered the 64-year-old Pellicano and two other defendants to forfeit a total of $2 million. Pellicano showed no emotion when the sentence was read, according to The AP. “I have taken full and complete responsibility,” he said. He had been convicted of a combined 78 counts, including wiretapping, racketeering and wire fraud, in two separate trials earlier this year. I’m told he gets no credit for time served.
