After being sentenced yesterday to as much as 10 years in prison for tax evasion, ReBar owner Jason Stevens has also agreed to pay back over $1 million in deposits he allegedly stole from couples who had booked weddings at ReBar before he shuttered the place. Stevens reached the deal, which is totally separate from yesterday's court sentencing, with the Attorney General's office, where ripped-off couples have been filing their complaints. According to the Brooklyn Paper, some speculate the deal will help Stevens avoid fraud charges for the theft. A judge still needs to sign off on the deal, but after that couples will have 120 days to come forward with proof that they lost money to Stevens. 73 couples have already filed complaints with the Attorney General.
