Parker film partner pleads guilty

Posted: Updated:

The partner of Vermont filmmaker Mac Parker has pleaded guilty to charges connected to a scheme intended to defraud investors out of millions.

Louis Soteriou of Connecticut, pleaded guilty to charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit mail fraud as part of a plea deal in Rutland Thursday.

Prosecutors agreed to drop 16 other counts against him. People invested $28 million in a film called "Birth of Innocence." They said Soteriou and Parker worked together on the scheme.

Parker also pleaded guilty to separate charges. He awaits sentencing.
