    Default Anthony Pellicano innocent on one count

    Convicted on the other 76! This might not count as Gossip so move it if so.

    Investigator to the Stars Is Convicted in Wiretaps

    By DAVID M. HALBFINGER
    LOS ANGELES — Anthony Pellicano, the ripped-from-a-pulp-novel private eye who made himself an indispensable fixer for Hollywood stars and moguls, was found guilty in federal court Thursday of racketeering, wiretapping and other charges.
    The jury of eight men and four women deliberated nine days before finding Mr. Pellicano, 64, guilty of 76 of the 77 counts against him, mostly in connection with his extensive wiretapping operation, which he used to dig up dirt on business enemies and former spouses of his powerful clients.
    The jury also convicted his four co-defendants, among them a former police detective and a retired phone company technician, on a variety of charges.
    The verdict, which took Judge Dale S. Fischer a full hour to read, was a resounding victory for the government after six years of investigation.
