LOS ANGELES -- Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for running a wiretapping scheme that spied on the rich and famous.
U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer sentenced the 64-year-old Pellicano on Monday and ordered him and two other defendants to forfeit a total of $2 million.
Prosecutors say Pellicano wiretapped stars such as Sylvester Stallone and bribed police to run names such as Garry Shandling and Kevin Nealon through law enforcement databases to find dirt clients could use in legal and other disputes.
In all, 14 people have been charged and seven have pleaded guilty.
