‘Die Hard’ Director To Do Hard Time
John McTiernan, director of the Hollywood blockbuster machine Die Hard, has been sentenced to a year in prison.
After fibbing to the FBI and a federal judge after he got caught up in the wiretapping/racketeering case against former private eye to the stars Anthony Pellicano, McTiernan was ordered to jail.
The 58-year-old filmmaker admitted making false statements but claimed to not know the extent to which the former sleuth had been illegally spying on the stars.
Along with his jail sentence, the director was also ordered to pay a $100,000 fine and complete three years of supervised probation.
