BOY BAND BACKER SENTENCED

The guru who created and produced boy band sensations 'N' Sync and the Back Street Boys was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Lou Pearlman pleaded guilty to conspiracy, money laundering and lying in a bankruptcy proceeding

Pearlman's boy band creations sold millions of records.

Federal prosecutors allege he robbed investors of millions in a decades-long investment scam.

Florida Judge G. Kendall Sharp told Pearlman he would reduce the sentence by one month for every $1 million that was returned to the investors.

And where's he going to get it from? Justin Timberlake?
