EDC boss Pasquale Rotella faces 13 years in prison

00:00 Nov/30/1999

The creator of Electric Daisy Carnival and a father to Playboy's centrefold Holly Madison's newborn daughter, is facing serious charges. He could see jailtime up to 13 years for bribery, embezzlement, conspiracy, and conflict of interest.

In the Radar Online report, the Insomniac CEO attended a pretrial meeting on Monday. Los Angeles County District Attorney alleges that the high profile event promoter bribed city officials with $2.5 million in funds from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Although Rotella is currently out on a $1.8 million bail, he's sure that the charges will be dropped. His attorney, Gary Jay Kaufman, seems to think the same:

“The charges are politically motivated and publicity driven. [Rotella] has always acted lawfully and appropriately with respect to all of his dealings with the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Any allegations of wrongdoing on the part of Mr. Rotella by the District Attorney’s office are completely baseless and flat-out wrong, both on the law and on the facts.”

The lawsuit will reconvene on July 29, just a little more than two weeks Rotella and fiance Madison plan to wed. The news comes after the EDC 2013 line-up is fully announced.
