The ex-wife of actor Keith Carradine and a former Beverly Hills cop pleaded guilty to federal charges in the latest round of fallout from the wiretapping investigation of Anthony Pellicano.
Sandra Carradine, who reportedly had been in a romantic entanglement with celebrity private eye Pellicano, and police officer Craig Stevens copped the pleas January 9th in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.
Carradine faces up to 10 years in prison for two counts of perjury. Her sentencing is scheduled for September 25th.
Stevens faces up to 35 years in prison for two counts of wire fraud and four counts of unauthorized access of protected computers to commit fraud. His sentencing is scheduled for October 16th.
The cases are connected to an ongoing FBI investigation of Pellicano involving possible illegal wiretaps on behalf of lawyers and their clients, some of whom reportedly are Hollywood A-listers.
Among those questioned, though not necessarily targets, in the investigation are
Pellicano is due to be released from a federal pen in February after completing a 30-month sentence for charges of possessing illegal weapons.
According to court documents, Carradine admitted she lied to a grand jury in October 2004 when she denied knowing that Pellicano wiretapped her former husband’s phone.
Stevens reportedly admitted using Beverly Hills Police Department computers to access DMV information on four people and selling it to Pellicano, who has been indicted for allegedly making criminal threats.
Pellicano allegedly hired a man who went to a Times reporter’s home in April 2002 and placed a dead fish with a rose in its mouth on a car windshield. A sign with the word “stop” was also placed on the windshield, according to court documents.
The reporter had been working on a story involving actor Steven Seagal and possible links to organized crime.
