Record exec sentenced in wiretap case

Robert Pfeifer hired Anthony Pellicano to spy on ex-girlfriend

A former record company executive has been sentenced to time served and four months home confinement for hiring Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano to wiretap an ex-girlfriend.

Robert Pfeifer already has served two months in federal prison.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Saunders says he also was sentenced Monday to home detention and 120 hours of community service, and ordered to pay $5,000 in fines.

Prosecutors said Pfeifer hired Pellicano in 2000 and paid $125,000 to listen to the girlfriend's phone conversations.

Pfeifer, a former Hollywood Records president, pleaded guilty in April 2006 to one count of aiding and abetting the interception of a wiretap.
