“Die Hard” Director John McTiernan Pleads Guilty to Lying to FBI

Rogue Los Angeles private detective Anthony Pellicano, who wiretapped the rich and famous, and is now in prison, is still touching the lives of some in a bad way.

The latest sign of that came Monday when “Die Hard” director John McTiernan pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about paying Pellicano $50,000 in 2000 to wiretap the telephone of a Hollywood producer Charles Roven, Bloomberg news reported.

Bloomberg reported that prosecutors filed a plea agreement in Los Angeles U.S. District Court. The agreement indicated that prosecutors won’t ask for more than a year in prison.

McTiernan, 59, originally pleaded guilty to the charges in 2006, but was later allowed to withdraw because he hadn’t gotten a hearing to try and suppress evidence, Bloomberg reported.

Pellicano, 66, got 15 years in prison for illegally spying on people. Pellicano is currently being housed in a low-security prison in southeastern Arizona. His release date is Feb. 28, 2019, according to the The Bureau of Prisons.
