A New Jersey wedding photographer who defrauded dozens of newly married couples is headed to state prison. Jack Holton, who operated photography businesses in Medford, Cinnaminson and Palmyra at various times, usually under the names "Weddings Unlimited" or "Renaissance Photography," had pleaded guilty to a theft charge last year.

On Friday, the 62-year-old Cinnaminson man received a three-year term Friday and was ordered to make restitution of 188,562.

Burlington County prosecutors say the 62-year-old Holton failed to deliver photographs, albums and other products to 88 couples between September 2002 and May 2009. The thefts range in amount from $800 to $6,600, and the victims came from several counties across New Jersey.

Investigators have some of Holton's inventory and are attempting to distribute it to their rightful owners.
