A jury in Des Moines, Iowa, found a Nebraska film producer guilty of fraud Thursday in a case that’s part of that state’s film office tax scandal.
The jury convicted 61-year-old Dennis Brouse of Plattsmouth, Nebraska, of a felony count of first-degree fraudulent practice.
Brouse, who owns Changing Horse Productions, was acquitted of a charge of first-degree ongoing criminal conduct.
Changing Horse Productions produced five television shows and DVD’s on horse training, including “Saddle Up with Dennis Brouse.”
Brouse produced and starred in the shows and received film tax credits of just over $9.1-million dollars before the program was shut down.
He will be sentenced on May second with a potential maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and fine of $10,000.
Brouse is the seventh person convicted in the Iowa Film Office tax scandal.
