LOS ANGELES — A Hollywood director who pleaded guilty in 2006 to lying to the FBI about his dealings with convicted private eye Anthony Pellicano may be entitled to withdraw his plea, an appeals court ruled today.
“Die Hard” and “Predator” director John McTiernan had argued he would not have admitted to the charge, for which he was sentenced to four months in prison, if his attorney at the time had given him better legal advice. Last year, a judge denied his motion to withdraw his plea.
The action-flick director was one of seven people who pleaded guilty to charges connected to Pellicano’s wiretapping and racketeering enterprise before the case went to trial.
McTiernan, 57, admitted to paying Pellicano to wiretap film producer Charles Roven after they had worked on the 2002 film “Rollerball,” and to misleading an FBI agent who interviewed him over the phone.
