Kiefer Sutherland may have fallen victim to a financial scam involving cattle.
Prosecutors say Michael Wayne Carr had agreements to buy steers in Mexico for his customers, including Sutherland, and sell them for profit in the United States, according to The Associated Press.
Carr allegedly took $869,000 from the 24 star, as well as $177,000 from a New Mexico couple, according to The AP. Prosecutors say, however, that there's no record that Carr ever purchased the steers.
According to The AP, Carr is charged with 12 felonies, including grand theft, forgery and embezzlement and faces 18 years in prison if convicted.
