Chicago Rapper Blaxican Indicted in $1.3 Million Fraud Case
Chicago rapper, Blaxican, whose real name is Eric Jaglicic, has been indicted for allegedly swindling several people out of $1.3 million dollars. According to the Herald News, the rapper and his business partner, Brian Falatovich, were each hit with 27 indictments last week on charges of theft, theft by deception, wire fraud, and security fraud. According to prosecutors, the duo conned unsuspecting victims out of cash by telling them that they were producing a movie called The Record Deal with actor Adam Sandler. The Herald News reports that Jaglicic first persuaded Falatovich to invest in the nonexistent film, and he in turn convinced 18 friends and relatives to contribute money to the project. In November, Blaxican’s mansion was seized by state investigators as part of the investigation. Jaglicic and Falatovich are due in court today.
