LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man convicted of setting up a fake benefit concert to steal the money, is heading to prison.

Kyle Nunn previously pleaded guilty to several charges, including theft by deception over $500  and forgery.

Police say last year he stole money that was supposed to go to the foundation "Addie's Army" to help to a local child who had been diagnosed with Leukemia. 

Authorities say he organized a benefit concert for the girl and promised a performance by country singer Jason Aldean. 

It was all a scam and now Nunn has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. 

He paid more than $13,000 to the victim at the sentencing.
