A man who promised to use the nearly $25,000 he raised to make a cowboy documentary narrated by Clint Eastwood is going to jail.  70-year-old Matthew McClintock has been sentenced to 10 years with the Department of Corrections, nine of which have been suspended.  McClintock will also have to pay back the money he bilked from investors, according to attorney Brett O’Neil, with the Office of the Montana State Auditor, who helped prosecute the case.
In August 2015, McClintock was charged with six felonies after securities officials found he spent the money he raised– after promising investors the documentary would air on PBS.  He also told them proceeds of the film would go to the Western Montana Breast Cancer Fund, which doesn’t exist.  In November, he accepted a plea deal as part of an agreement that dismissed his other charges.
