Woman admits selling tickets for bogus Sheryl Crow concert: Flying W Airport (N14), Medford, Burlington County, New Jersey

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.
