Jodie Foster's father was alienated jailed for five years over a property scam in which customers who sought his relationship to his famous daughter to lure customers to separate the money.

Judge Gregory Dohi that give voice to the interests of Lucius Fisher Foster III, 89, convicted earlier this week, had not shown any indication that would stop soliciting clients.

"Despite his personal charm, she's dangerous," the judge told the court in Van Nuys, just north of Los Angeles, Foster said that he "continued his business as we speak." A jury took just three hours Wednesday to convict him of 21 counts of theft and nine great bargain without a license after apparently fooled nearly two dozen investors out of more than $ 100,000.

Breeding, who is estranged from his daughter, offered to build houses for 20 alleged victims in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles, after contact through its own Web site owned by real estate agents or references.

He "has said at least half the victims who is the father of Jodie as a part of the scam to build trust," the Deputy City Attorney Don Cocek told the court during the trial.

Each said the victim gave 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.

One of his victims, 26-year-old Corrinne Unsell of Long Beach, south of Los Angeles, told the judge that she and her husband had invested $ 10,000 with Foster in 2008.

"It is the liar of the century or manic," he said. "Whether the way is dangerous. Never mind that 89 years ago.

'We know it's capable of. Raising - that could have been jailed for up to 25 years - remains estranged from his famous daughter. "If you had a bad person in her family, she would draw the walls around him?" said before the verdict was announced.

A public relations agent for Jodie Foster - the star of "The Silence of the Lambs," "Panic Room" and "Contact" - said he would not comment.
