Director Admits Inflating Movie Costs In Mass.

BOSTON (AP) — A movie director charged with inflating expenses in his application for Massachusetts film tax credits has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced to up to 3 years in state prison.

Daniel Adams had initially pleaded not guilty to 10 charges including larceny and making a false claim against the state. He has also been ordered to pay nearly $4.4 million in restitution to the state.

A judge ordered Adams released Thursday on $10,000 bail until the start of his sentence on May 10. Adams was also ordered to surrender his passport and wear a GPS tracking device.

Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office had accused Adams of exaggerating expenses for two films shot on Cape Cod, “The Golden Boys” and “The Lightkeepers,” resulting in about $4.7 million in tax credit overpayments.
