Billy McFarland – co-founder of the famed Fyre Festival – may be out of his cell, but he has a lot to do before he becomes a totally free man, including a mental health program and bills he has to pay.
Billy’s lawyer, Jason Russo, tells us that the disgraced festival organizer is currently living in a prison halfway house. According to legal documents, obtained by TMZ, Billy is required to follow a strict set of conditions for the next 3 years while on probation.
As part of the terms, Billy must attend an outpatient mental health treatment program, continue to take all prescribed medications, and pay outstanding fees for services.
In addition to this, any of his personal effects may be searched at any time if his probation officer suspects an offence.
As we reported, Billy was moved in March from federal prison to a halfway house. Of course, that comes after he’s been sentenced to 6 years in prison in 2018 after To plead guilty to 2 counts of wire fraud over the disastrous festival.
We are told that his goal now is to repay the $26 million he owes to festival victims. And, he’s apparently already brainstorming ideas — like a book or a movie — now that he got out of jail.
