A 60-page indictment was unsealed Monday against private detective Anthony Pellicano, who was one day shy of completing a 30-month sentence for illegal possession of explosives, charging him with conspiring to wiretap, blackmail, and intimidate numerous Hollywood figures. He was ordered held without bail. Six others were also named as co-conspirators, including former LAPD Sgt. Mark Arneson and telephone company employee Rayford Turner. However, Pellicano was singled out as the leader of the conspiracy, saying that he acted on behalf of clients who included "entertainment celebrities and executives, attorneys and law firms." Today's (Tuesday) Los Angeles Times observed that many of the alleged victims, including Sylvester Stallone and Garry Shandling, are persons who battled clients of famed show-business attorney Bert Fields, whose "shadow," said the newspaper, "looms over the case." Fields himself commented to the newspaper, "It's something I want to stay out of. I try to keep practicing law and not pay a lot of attention to it." A partner in Fields' law firm commented, "If Mr. Pellicano engaged in any illegal activity, he did so without their or the firm's knowledge or authorization." In its report, the Times observed, "Although the indictment does not specify which cases Pellicano was working on, names cited in the charges read like a road map leading to Fields and his firm."
