Prosecutors say a New York City concierge-service entrepreneur claimed he could get clients into presidential inaugural balls and other elite events, but instead used customers' credit-card info to pay for his own pricey hotel stays.

Robert Giuliano is being held on $250,000 bond after pleading not guilty Wednesday to identity theft and other charges. His lawyer didn't immediately return a call Wednesday evening.

The Manhattan district attorney's office says the 36-year-old ran a business called Giuliano Group Concierge. Its website touts access to presidential inaugurals, celebrity parties, television set visits "and other ultra-exclusive A-list events and experiences."

Prosecutors say Giuliano bilked two clients out of a total of more than $11,000 after they booked hotel rooms through him.
