A GISBURN dad who claimed he had secured pop star Peter Andre to perform at a charity concert has been spared a jail term.
Shaun Bradbury, 35, of Mill Lane, Gisburn, who had previously admitted 10 counts of fraud, was given an eight-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months.
He must do 120 hours’ community service and pay £120 compensation.
Father-of-three Bradbury set up a project called Dominic’s House because two of his sons have autism.
It was not a registered charity, and some of the events advertised changed at the last minute, leaving people who had bought tickets disappointed.
Eight of the charges related to him dishonestly using a relative’s credit card where, in some cases, he used it to pay to set up ‘charity’ gigs he had organised.
