New York - A New York man who stole millions of dollars from clients by falsely promising to book performances by world-famous recording artists like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber has been sentenced to five to 10 years in prison.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr announced the sentencing of 39-year-old Meceo McEaddy on Tuesday.
His co-defendant, 48-year-old Sylvester Vincent Carroll, of New Jersey, was sentenced this month to three to nine years in prison. Both pleaded guilty to multiple counts of grand larceny, scheme to defraud and other charges.
Vance says the two stole about $3.7m from party planners around the world. He says the scheme began in 2010 when the duo took $825 000 from a Brazilian company that believed it had booked Rihanna for concerts in Rio de Janeiro.
