Sentencing delayed for Jodie Foster’s dad
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Scheduling issues have delayed the sentencing of Jodie Foster’s estranged father, who faces more than 25 years behind bars after being convicted of bilking more than $100,000 from the poor and elderly in a home-building scheme.
City attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan (mah-TEHL’-jin) says Lucius Foster will return to court Friday morning. The 89-year-old was convicted of 21 misdemeanor counts of grand theft Wednesday after a jury determined he had bilked 21 people out of money.
He was expected to be sentenced Thursday but could not be returned from jail to court in time.
Lucius Foster was convicted of taking $5,000 each from people for whom he promised to build affordable homes made from cargo containers. The units were never built, and prosecutors alleged he blatantly lied to clients.
