LAS VEGAS, Nevada (KHNL) -- A Las Vegas judge sacks a con man who swindled fans of their Pro Bowl dreams.

Mitchell Chirchick stole fans' money, vacations to Hawaii, and trust.

The one-time event planner was convicted in Las Vegas, of cheating hundreds of people out of a trip to last year's Pro-Bowl.

He sold phony travel packages.

Victims didn't know they were duped, until they showed up at the airport.

A judge sentenced Chirchick to eight to 20 years in prison.

He must also pay roughly $330,000 dollars in restitution.
