Convicted filmmaker gets up to 3 years, told to repay state
Daniel Adams, a Cape Cod filmmaker convicted of fraud for illegally obtaining $4.7 million in state film tax credits, was sentenced Thursday to two to three years in state prison. Following his release, Adams faces 10 years of probation. He was also ordered to pay $4.4 million in restitution to the state under the sentence imposed by Massachusetts Superior Court Judge Carol Ball. Adams’s attorney, James Greenberg, called the sentence fair, given that his client had no prior criminal history.
