Talk Not Cheap

For a Hollywood director:

Die Hard director John McTiernan has been sentenced to four months in prison after a judge refused his request to withdraw a guilty plea.

....McTiernan, 56, pleaded guilty last year to making false statements to FBI agents investigating disgraced celebrity detective Anthony Pellicano.

He tried to withdraw his plea, claiming insufficient legal representation.

The 56-year-old's lawyer has indicated that an appeal will be mounted.

....When he entered his guilty plea last year, the film director told a judge that he had denied knowing about Anthony Pellicano's alleged wiretapping activities during his FBI interview.

But he then admitted he had used the detective to wiretap Charles Roven, who he worked with on the film Rollerball.
