John McTiernan, director of films such as "Die Hard," "The Last Action Hero" and "Medicine Man," has been sentenced to four months in prison after a judge refused his request to withdraw a guilty plea.
McTiernan, 56, pleaded guilty last year to making false statements to FBI agents investigating detective to the stars and super-wiretapper Anthony Pellicano.
He tried to withdraw his guilty plea, claiming insufficient legal representation.
His new legal team argued that "he had just returned from a long trip to Asia when he spoke to an FBI agent, was on antibiotics and had come off anti-depressant medication."
But the judge said the arguments were "completely lacking in credibility".
