Pellicano ‘taps opened

Transcripts get public viewing

Prosecutors will be allowed to see transcripts of wiretaps found in the office of private detective Anthony Pellicano, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled last week. The 2-1 ruling can be appealed.

Prosecutors will be allowed to use the evidence to support more charges against Pellicano or others involved in the wiretapping.

Pellicano had argued that the FBI’s search of his office in November 2002 was illegal and that evidence seized there could not be used against him. The court rejected that claim and confirmed his conviction on charges that he had unregistered firearms, grenades and plastic explosives. He pleaded guilty in 2003 and was sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Pellicano’s client list included Elizabeth Taylor, Tom Cruise, Michael Jackson, Kevin Costner, Farrah Fawcett and several major entertainment lawyers.
