Holly Madison's Fiancée Faces Prison Time

Though she just announced on Sunday that she's chosen a date to wed her baby's father Pasquale Rotella, some bad news may put a damper on Holly Madison's wedding planning.

On Monday, the CEO of Insomniac Events appeared before a judge as he faced charges of bribery, embezzlement, conspiracy, and conflict of interest.

A pretrial conference with the Los Angeles District Attorney was held in which it was alleged that the event planner paid off city officials with $2.5 million in funds from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where he hosted parties. If convicted, Rotella could spend up to 13 years in prison.

Though he's out on bail, the next court date is scheduled on July 29th, a little over two weeks before he plans to meet Holly down the aisle.

According to Rotella's attorney Gary Jay Kaufman, "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. All transactions between Insomniac and the Coliseum were transparent and approved by the Coliseum General Manager, his staff, and the attorneys representing the Coliseum."
