CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / LOS ANGELES

16-year term for Pellicano is urged

October 25, 2008|associated press

Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to sentence former Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano to nearly 16 years in prison for 78 convictions that include wiretapping, racketeering and wire fraud.

The U.S. attorney's office filed court documents Thursday stating that Pellicano deserved a lengthy sentence because the convictions represent only a fraction of his criminal conduct.

The 64-year-old investigator, who was known for his high-profile clients, earned millions of dollars through use of illegal means to perform his job, prosecutors said.

Pellicano is scheduled to be sentenced next month by U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer.

The former private eye was convicted of the felonies in two trials earlier this year.
