WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (AP) — A Marshfield man has been found guilty for allegedly stealing more than $50,000 in a Green Bay Packers ticket scam.
The Marshfield News-Herald Media reports 37-year-old Patrick Blachut pleaded no contest Wednesday to four felony and five misdemeanor counts of theft by false representation, as part of a plea agreement. Three additional felony counts and three other misdemeanor counts were dismissed.
According to court documents, Blachut offered to sell 15 people Packers tickets in September. Several people paid more than $6,000 each for what they thought would be season tickets.
According to the complaint, Blachut admitted to taking the money.
Wood County District Attorney Craig Lambert said he would request three years in prison and three years of extended supervision, followed by three years of probation.
Sentencing is Aug. 6.
