Ex-Sheriff's Deputy Facing 10 Years in Prison For Def Leppard Ticket Scam

(hennemusic) A pair of $600 Def Leppard tickets just got way more expensive for a Florida man.

The Sun-Sentinel reports Shawn Terel Barber, a former Broward County Sheriff's Office deputy, was convicted on Wednesday of grand theft and filing a fraudulent insurance claim, according to Palm Beach County State Attorney Michael McAuliffe.

Prosecutors say Barber, 44, is facing up to 10 years in prison when he's sentenced on January 27. As a birthday present from his wife, Barber received a pair of tickets to Def Leppard's March 29, 2008 concert at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, FL. Great gift...what could go wrong?
