Fifty-six-year-old Joann Wiggan also was fined $7,500.

Wiggan was convicted of perjury and making false statements last year for lying to the FBI, a federal grand jury and in court.

Prosecutors say Wiggan connected wires at her SBC workplace so former private eye Anthony Pellicano could tap the phones of stars such as Sylvester Stallone.

Pellicano is serving a 15-year federal sentence for wiretapping, conspiracy and other crimes. Wiggan was the 14th person convicted in the case.
