Cook's Half-brother Indicted On More Larceny Charges

Subscribe to Dane Cook alerts

Comedian Dane Cook's half-brother is facing a further 20 counts of larceny in connection to allegations he embezzled more than $11 million (£7.3 million) from the funnyman.
Darryl MCCauley, who worked as the funnyman's business manager for almost five years, was arrested in Massachusetts in December (08). He was accused of stealing from Cook's fortune and forging a $3 million (£2 million) cheque to himself.
He has pleaded not guilty to eight counts of larceny, forgery and larceny by continuous scheme and is currently being held behind bars as he awaits a pre-trial hearing.
But, on Monday (06Jul09), it emerged MCCauley had been indicted on another 20 charges, dating back to March 2004.
The Good Luck Chuck actor, 37, broke his silence about his sibling's charges in April (09), admitting it was a "terrible betrayal".
Cook added, "I worked with my only half-brother for several years. (I) woke up one day and a lot of stuff was missing. There is a good chunk of money that is certainly not accounted for... Hopefully justice will be served and I can move on with my life."
