Los Angeles (AP) --

A former phone company employee was acquitted Monday on four perjury charges related to the wiretapping case against Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano, and the jury deadlocked on the fifth count.

Joann Wiggan, 52, was one of three SBC employees who were alleged to have supplied a former co-worker with information from confidential databases. She was accused of lying to a grand jury about her activities.

Wiggan's attorney, David Reed, described his client as a "soccer mom who's never been in trouble." He said the verdict "is akin to David beating Goliath."

Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Saunders said the verdict would have no impact on the Pellicano case.
