'BOOM': Hollywood producer arrested on multiple fraud charges, including receipt of $1.7 million of PPP loans

Hollywood producer William Sadleir was arrested and charged with defrauding investors, in this case, the private equity firm BlackRock, for almost $30 million:


He was also accused of applying for $1.7 million in fraudulent loans from the PPP program:

Sadleir was fired in January. . .his bankers didn’t think to double-check?


“This is a bigger BOOM than most realize”:
