Fyre Festival organizer Billy McFarland pleaded guilty to wire-fraud charges in March.

McFarland admitted he defrauded 80 investors and a ticket broker out of more than $26 million.

On June 12, McFarland was arrested on charges of running a fraudulent ticket-selling enterprise called NYC VIP Access while out on bail.
