 According to The Hollywood Reporter, Director John McTiernan–most famously known for directing the movie ‘Die Hard’– has been sentenced to one year in prison for lying to the FBI during its investigation of the wiretapping scandal surrounding former LA private investigator Anthony Pellicano.

The Supreme Court denied McTiernan’s request to reverse his guilty plea and suppress a recording of him speaking on Pellicano’s use of an illegal wiretap.

McTiernan hired Pellicano back in 2002 to investigate producer Chuck Roven, with whom he was collaborating with on the remake of Rollerball.

So where’s Pellicano? He’s already in prison…serving a 15-year sentence for wiretapping, harassment, identity theft, and racketeering. Yikes.

McTiernan should be headed to incarceration soon – but another lawyer has stated that there’s a small chance this could be delayed as there’s still a motion which could ‘reduce or get rid of the sentence altogether on the grounds that there may be no substantial proof that Pellicano ever wiretapped Roven in the first place.’

However this is highly doubtful, as McTiernan’s sentence is for lying to the FBI, which he did.

Should McTiernan’s incarceration go on as sentenced, he will serve a year in prison before being released under supervision for three years.

He will also have to pay a fine of $100,000.

Florida Man Lives With 14 Big Cats Including Lions And Tigers, Oh My! (Video)

People call me a crazy cat lady because I have three cats. This is fair, and I’ll wear the title proudly. But, in my defense, there are people out there even crazier than I am. Take, for example, the Florida man who has 14 cats. In this case, however, the “cats” he keeps aren’t domesticated pets so […]

Why We Should Say What We Mean And Mean What We Say

It is a concept (and absolutely wonderful advice) that stands as a lesser-represented idiomatic phrase from our childhoods. Many of us remember classics like, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” Or, “I’m rubber and you’re glue; whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.” Those may have helped […]
