Local Chicago Rapper, Blaxican, Facing 15 Years in Prison
As previously reported on XXLMag.com, local Chicago rapper, Erick “Blaxican” Jaglicic, was indicted in June for allegedly swindling several people out of $1.6 million. The Herald News reported that Blaxican and his business partner, Brian Falatovich, conned unsuspecting victims out of cash by telling them they were producing a movie called The Record Deal with actor Adam Sandler. Blaxican allegedly persuaded Falatovich to invest in the nonexistent film, and in turn, convinced 18 friends and relatives to contribute money to the project. Now, the Chicago Tribune is reporting that Blaxican’s $450,000 Homer Glen home may be put up for sale by the state in order to pay back the alleged victims. Illinois state officials seized Blaxican’s home in November 2006 and are currently going through court proceedings to sell it. Yesterday, October 10, Will County Judge Richard Siegel set a November 20 court date to hear arguments in the case. In addition, Blaxican will appear in a DuPage County Court next week on 22 counts of theft, three counts of security violations and two counts of wire fraud. Blaxican and his partner, Brian Falatovich, are facing up to 15 years in prison. As if that wasn’t enough, Blaxican, who is currently locked up in a DuPage County Jail, may face an additional five years sentence for allegedly communicating with a witness in his case.
