John McTiernan, director of Die Hard, Predator and The Hunt for Red October, has been sentenced by a US District Judge to a year in prison for his part in the Anthony Pellicano wire tap case.

The judge also ordered McTiernan, who will be released on bond pending an appeal, to pay a $100,000 fine.

McTiernan pled guilty in July to two counts of giving false statements to the FBI and one of giving a false statement to the court.

The counts arose from the investigation of Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano, who in 2008 was sentenced to 15 years for bugging the phones of celebrities and industry figures to get information for clients. McTiernan had hired Pellicano to investigate producer Charles Roven.
