MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey woman has admitted to selling tickets to a purported Sheryl Crow concert, even though she knew the artist wouldn’t be performing there.

The Burlington County Times reports (https://bit.ly/1UUiKiX ) 42-year-old Kelly Bryan pleaded guilty to theft by deception on Tuesday.

The Burlington Township woman admitted that she advertised the fake concert on Facebook, sold the tickets and booked vendors while operating as KBR Promotions.

Bryan says she was working with a booking company to get Crow to headline the show but acknowledged there was never a contract in place and she falsely promoted that Crow would perform.

Bryan faces up to five years of probation when she’s sentenced on June 14. Prosecutors say she’s also expected to be ordered to pay between $20,000 and $30,000 in restitution.
