Jodie Foster’s Father Gets 5 Years For Defrauding Homebuyers

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Jodie Foster’s estranged father was sentenced Friday to five years in jail for defrauding dozens of low-income homebuyers.

Lucius Foster, 89, was found guilty of 21 misdemeanor counts of grand theft earlier this week.

Prosecutors say he took $5,000 from at least 21 people, promising to build them more affordable homes made from cargo containers.

Those units were never built.

It’s unclear what Foster did with the estimated $130,000 he had collected from his victims.

    He should get LIFE, or 5 years if he reveals what happened to the money. If there’s no electronic, paper, or purchase trail, then it could be sitting somewhere in cold hard cash awaiting his release.

      dude, hes 89. He sort of DID get life.

    I’m thinking that estrangement was due to his daughters anomalous proclivities. Just a guess, albeit a legitimate one.

    Corrupt FBI and DEA use no-knock warrants to enter suspect’s homes while they are away and steal items.

    They mostly steal watches, jewelry and less frequently expensive prescription drugs by returning a second time and swapping them with fakes.

    Some of them where stealing wear item parts off of cars, swapping them with old worn out parts from their personal autos and in some cases leaving the auto in a dangerous state.
