An Coshocton couple has pleaded guilty in a Craigslist scam that duped hundreds of victims in 36 states and Canada into buying nonexistent tickets to events like the Super Bowl and concerts including Katy Perry and Kenny Chesney.

 
Court documents say Todd and Jessica Steinhaus netted more than $200,000 over four years.
 
The Ohio attorney general's office said Monday that both pleaded guilty last week to engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity. Todd Steinhaus also pleaded guilty to two additional felonies and faces up to 17 years in prison. His wife faces a maximum of 11
years in prison. Both will be sentenced early next year.
 
Jessica Steinhaus' attorney says she takes responsibility and feels remorse for her actions. An attorney for her husband declined to comment.
