Fiorentino's Boyfriend Pleads Guilty In Pellicano Case

Actress LINDA FIORENTINO's FBI agent boyfriend has admitted to stealing secret files and passing them off to an unnamed woman with ties to shamed private investigator-to-the-stars ANTHONY PELLICANO.
Fiorentino's ex, Mark Rossini, was arrested last week (beg01Dec08) after he was allegedly caught prying into confidential files about Pellicano.
He pleaded guilty on Monday (08Dec08) to five misdemeanour counts of illegally accessing FBI computers during a six-month period in 2007, one week after resigning from duty.
According to the New York Post, Fiorentino - who has been dating Rossini for two years - is writing a screenplay about Pellicano, who was convicted this summer (08) of using illegal wire taps to find out information about Hollywood stars.
According to federal investigators, Rossini accessed information on super agent Michael Ovitz, entertainment lawyer Bert Fields, and William Morris agency President James Wiatt - confidential papers which eventually landed in Pellicano's hands.
Prosecution court papers allege, "Rossini provided a copy of (an FBI) report to X," adding, "X also had a previous relationship with Anthony Pellicano, and X provided a copy of the FBI report to an attorney for Anthony Pellicano."
The unnamed woman has not been charged and has not been identified as a suspect in any crime.
Fiorentino and Rossini's lawyer, Adam Hoffinger, could not be reached for comment as WENN went to press.
U.S. Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola told Rossini, "You abused the position you had. I have no idea what your sentence will be."
His sentencing is scheduled for 13 March (09).
Rossini faces up to five years in jail and a $500,000 (GBP339,260) fine for the misdemeanour convictions.
