A business manager has been charged with embezzling more than $6.5 million from pro athletes and entertainers including pop singer Alanis Morissette, federal prosecutors announced Wednesday.
Jonathan Todd Schwartz, 48, of Playa Vista, is accused of wire fraud and filing a false tax return for failing to disclose the purloined funds to the Internal Revenue Service, a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California said.
Schwartz, who lived in Agoura Hills at the time of the alleged crimes, has agreed to plead guilty to two of the felony offenses, the news release said. He is a former member of Sherman Oaks-based GSO Business Management, which cooperated with the investigation.
