Fyre Festival organizer Billy McFarland was just sentenced to time in prison on fraud charges.
In case you somehow forgot, he was behind the total disaster that left ticket-holders stranded on an island in the Bahamas without the musical performances and luxury accommodations they paid up to $12,000 for.
Prosecutors were looking to send Billy away for 15-20 years, but he was only sentenced to six, and has been ordered to forfeit over $26 million.
