As a result of the lawsuit Alanis Morissette filed last year against her business managers, GSO Business Management and Jonathan Schwartz, Schwartz is facing a few years in prison. Schwartz admitted to embezzling nearly $5 million from Alanis over roughly a four year period. Additionally, Schwartz embezzled another $2 million from other clients. Maybe Alanis should've kept both hands in her pockets.
Last May, after Alanis filed her civil lawsuit, GSO Business Management quickly, and quietly, settled that case. While the exact details of the settlement are confidential, one would anticipate that the business management company made Alanis whole by paying back the stolen monies on Schwartz's behalf, whom they sued the day before Alanis filed her suit.
Alanis's civil lawsuit essentially led to the federal criminal prosecution of Schwartz for the embezzlement, or, technically, the failing to report the embezzled monies as income to the IRS (which is what he pled guilty to). Schwartz's plea deal should land him no more than four years, though technically, he could be facing over two decades behind bars.
