    A Giants season ticket holder from New Jersey has been accused of stealing more than $75,000 from dozens fellow fans looking to buy season tickets at MetLife Stadium for the 2010 season, prosecutors say.

    Prosecutors say that 47-year-old John Gorman, of Matawan, allegedly conned fans into paying him for personal seat licenses he didn’t actually own between 2008 and 2010 by using documents he received from the Giants as a season ticket holder. On at least one occasion, Gorman allegedly posed as a ticketing manager for the team, Monmouth County prosecutors say.

    Once fans paid Gorman, they never received their seats for the 2010 season, prosecutors say.

    Personal seat licenses are a one-time fee that the Giants began charging for people who bought season tickets when the team started playing at MetLife Stadium in 2010.

    Gorman is charged with second-degree theft by deception and could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Attorney information for the man wasn’t immediately available.

    Anyone who might have talked with Gorman about personal seat licenses is asked to call the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 1-800-5333-7443.
