Former celeb sleuth pleads no contest

LOS ANGELES Former celeb sleuth Anthony Pellicano, who is serving a 15-year prison term in a federal racketerring, conspiracy and wiretapping case, pleaded no contest today to charges of criminal threats and conspiracy to commit a crime against an L.A. Times reporter.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William N. Sterling immediately sentenced Pellicano to three years in prison, which can be served at the same time as the former private investigator's federal prison term.

Co-defendant Alexander Proctor also pleaded no contest and was ordered to serve three years in prison, which can be served at the same time as his 10-year federal prison term in a drug case.
