Jodie Foster’s dad tried to sell low-cost homes made out of shipping containers on Craigslist.
And it all turned out to be a scheme. Foster is now being charged with 25 counts of grand theft and 10 counts of contracting without a license.
Foster, who uses a walker, made for one strange defense attorney. He thanked each of his accusers after they testified. On one occasion, he commended a woman for being “truthful and honest and straightforward” after she lambasted him in court. In another instance, he applauded a man “for showing up.” To another, he asked: “You still want the house?”
