Billy McFarland arrested, charged with wire fraud.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/30/arts/music/billy-mcfarland-fyre-festival-arrested.html

The new Digital Crystal Ball (with outdoor antenna and RF amp) says there will be more criminal charges, and JaRule will not escape them.

For those who still have an inquiring mind...

Billy McFarland, fraudster behind the ill-fated Fyre Festival has plead guilty to a plea bargain that will get him 8 to 10 years.

I hope the $300,000 bond to appear at sentencing is enough to ensure he shows up in court again.
