Fyre Festival Organizer Sentenced To 6 Years On Fraud Charges

Billy McFarland, the organizer behind last year’s disastrous Fyre Festival in the Bahamas, has been sentenced to six years in prison for fraud charges.

The 26-year-old was sentenced in a Manhattan federal courtroom on Thursday after pleading guilty in March to two counts of wire fraud related to the failed festival, The Associated Press reported.Sponsored: Gambar Koala

While out on bail in June, he was arrested a second time for carrying out a new sham ticket scheme, NYC VIP Access, which sold bogus tickets to exclusive events, earning him $100,000, prosecutors said.

He pleaded guilty in July to two more counts of fraud after that arrest.
