Stevens in court last month.

Erstwhile reBar owner and accused wedding-deposit thief Jason Stevens has pleaded guilty to grand larceny and tax fraud, part of a deal that could land him ten years in jail. The minimum he can expect at his July 21 sentencing is 40 months, but either length struck a lot of the couples who showed up at the courthouse today as lenient, because it didn't address their claims of theft. "We do not feel justice was served for us," said Egon Smullyan, who lost $19,000. "We feel it was served for the state." Stevens still has a class action or two to look forward to, plus possible action by the State Attorney General's office. [DNAinfo, Earlier, Related]
