SEC Charges Hollywood Film Executive With Fraud

The Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday filed fraud charges against a Hollywood movie executive for stealing money from a BlackRock Inc. fund.

The regulator alleges that William Sadleir diverted some $25 million from the BlackRock Multi-Sector Income Trust, a roughly $600 million fund that financed his film distribution holding company, Aviron Group. The SEC said Mr. Sadleir siphoned the money into a fake company he created.
