This week an important link in that particular wave of pop culture has finally felt the hammer drop. Lou Pearlman, the creator of both the B-street Boys and ‘N Sync, was sentenced to 25 years in the can, convicted on four separate federal charges. 


Pearlman, was the main architect of the hormonal explosion of post-Disney super stars that raked in billions of merchandising money during the earlier part of this decade. Problem was he inflated his net worth and cheated investors out of $300 million dollars.

When the FBI found out that all of the planes he said he had chartered for musical acts and guests didn’t exist, the chase was on. So it was “run fat man, run” for Lou Pearlman over the past year, evading authorities all over the globe like some twisted bubble-gummed Indiana Jones.Until now. He has 25 years or, as the judge stated, one less month in prison for every $1 million he returns to investors.
