Things are moving along in the Anthony Pellicano trial. FBLA has learned that the plea deals for retired police sergeant Mark Arneson and telephone company ex-employee Ray Turner (reported yesterday in Radar) have broken down. The pair were hoping to plead guilty only to charges not including RICO statutes.

Arneson was charged with supplying Pellicano with personal and private information through the illegal use of his police computers, and Turner is accused of helping set up the illegal wiretaps.

The FBI has notified witnesses (and their lawyers) to get ready.
