One will surely gain some spotlight when your father is one of Hollywood's biggest names. And most people know about Elizabeth Guber because of her father, Peter Guber.

And in 2017, Galanis was sentenced to fourteen years of the prison sentence. Similarly, John Galanis (also a part of the scheme) was sentenced to ten years in March 2019.
