Terry Christensen gets three years

He was sentenced today to three years, plus a $250,000 fine, for conspiring with Anthony Pellicano to wiretap the wife of mogul Kirk Kerkorian. Christensen, who has already left Christensen, Glaser, Fink, Jacobs, Weil & Shapiro (since renamed), was allowed to remain free pending appeal.
