Jodie Foster Father

December 11, 2011 by staff 

Jodie Foster Father, Actress Jodie Foster’s estranged father has been jailed for five years over an £80,000 ­housing scam. Building contractor Lucius Foster took deposits for houses he never built. He was found guilty of 21 counts of grand theft and nine counts of contracting without a licence. LA Superior Court judge Gregory Dohi called Foster – who is challenging the amount he is said to have taken – “dangerous”.

Foster of Sherman Oaks, California, left Jodie’s ­mother before the Silence of the Lambs and Taxi Driver star was born.

City attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says Lucius Foster was sentenced Friday, two days after he was convicted of 21 misdemeanor counts of grand theft.

The 89-year-old Foster was convicted of taking £3,200 each from people for whom he promised to build affordable homes made from cargo containers.

The units were never built, and prosecutors said he lied to clients.

Lucious Foster told local media he remains estranged from his daughter, a two-time Oscar winner.

He is due back in court on February 23 for a restitution hearing.
