A Burlington Township woman claimed responsibility Tuesday for selling tickets to a bogus Sheryl Crow concert, according to a Burlington County Times report.
Kelly Bryan, 42, pleaded guilty to third-degree theft by deception in court.
The woman admitted she promoted the phony concert headlining Crow -- and featuring other artists. It was scheduled for August 15, 2015, at the Flying W Airport in Medford, New Jersey.
Suspicions arose in May when police began planning security for the event. Bryan was arrested later that month.
Shortly after the arrest, the Grammy-winning singer issued a statement via her Facebook page notifying fans that the concert was fraudulent.
Bryan faces a maximum of five years of probation and will pay restitution as part of her plea deal. Sentencing is scheduled for June 14.
