According to the Associated Press, Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to sentence the famous, former Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano to serve anywhere form from 16 years in prison for the 78 convictions the private investigator was found guilty of earlier this year. Pellicano’s convictions included wiretapping, racketeering and wire fraud.
The U.S. attorney’s office has filed court documents stating that Pellicano deserved a long prison sentence because the convictions represent only a fraction of his criminal conduct. Pellicano, the 64-year-old investigator, was known for his high-profile clients, earning millions of dollars and reportedly lived a very lavish lifestyle through use of
illegal means to perform his job as a private investigsator.
Anthony Pellicano is scheduled to be sentenced sometime in November by U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer.
