Jr Warner was part of ticket scam

New York: A son of indicted former FIFA vice president Jack Warner detailed his role in a lucrative scam to resell World Cup tickets, in court testimony released on Friday.

Daryan Warner pleaded guilty in October 2013 to three counts that include wire fraud and money laundering as part of the ticketing scam for the 2006 and 2010 World Cups in Germany and South Africa.

“I agreed with others to purchase tickets to the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cup and resell at a substantial profit,” he told a court in New York, according to a transcript put online by Buzzfeed.

He faces a possible 20 years in prison and consented to forfeit more than $1.17 million at the closed-doors hearing on October 18, 2013.
