Mass. Grand Jury Indicts Movie Director In Alleged Film Tax Credit Scheme

BOSTON (AP) — A movie director charged with defrauding the state of $4.7 million in film tax credits is scheduled to appear in court during the coming week.

A Suffolk County Grand Jury has indicted 50-year-old Daniel Adams on several counts of larceny and making false claims.

Adams was arrested Dec. 8 and ordered held on $100,000 cash bail.

He’s due for a hearing on Wednesday in Suffolk Superior Court.

Adams is accused of inflating expenses for two films shot on Cape Cod, “The Golden Boys” and “The Lightkeepers.”

In one instance, prosecutors allege Adams reported paying actor Richard Dreyfuss $2.5 million, when he actually was paid $400,000.

Adams has pleaded not guilty.

His lawyer said there was a rush to judgment to arrest Adams before a grand jury had finished its work.
