HONOLULU (CelebrityAccess) Marc Hubbard, the promoter behind a botched concert by Stevie Wonder to play at the University of Hawaii, was sentenced April 6 to nearly five years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Leslie Kobayashi ordered that Hubbard receive a 57-month sentence to run consecutively with more than six years he is serving for a similar case in Pennsylvania, according to the Associated Press.

The university paid a $200,000 deposit in 2012 for a Stevie Wonder show and began selling tickets. However, Wonder’s longtime agency, CAA, nor agent Rob Light were ever informed of the performance and alerted the university to that effect.

Defense attorney William Harrison said Hubbard intends to appeal the decision.
