Money embezzled from Boyd Tinsley

A man has admitted embezzling at least 400,000 dollars from Dave Matthews Band violinist Boyd Tinsley.

Court documents said Getty Andrew Rothenberg pleaded guilty to wire fraud in federal court in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The documents said the 39-year-old Richmond man embezzled the money while working as a personal assistant and financial manager for a person identified only as "CBT".

The US attorney's office confirmed the person was music star Tinsley.

Rothenberg's duties included paying personal bills and expenses and directing investments. He submitted fraudulent or inflated bills and used the excess money for personal use.

Rothenberg faces up to 30 years in prison. Sentencing is set for September 17.
