Jodie Foster’s father charged in Calif. property scam
Jodie Foster’s father could face more than 20 years in prison for a property scam in which he touted his relation to his famous daughter to lure customers to part with their money, prosecutors said Thursday.
According to Agence France-Presse, Lucius Fisher Foster III, 89, was charged with 17 counts of grand theft and seven of contracting without a license after allegedly cheating investors out of more than $100,000, said Deputy City Attorney Don Cocek.
Mr. Foster, who is estranged from his daughter, allegedly offered to build homes for 20 people in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles, after contacting them through his own property website or referrals from Realtors.
Each victim allegedly gave Mr. Foster a deposit of $5,000 and received a contract for their home to be built, “but no house was ever built,” said the prosecutor. A pretrial hearing is set for Nov. 17.
Mr. Foster’s daughter, star of “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Panic Room” and “Contact,” was not immediately available for comment.
