Whitesnake‘s David Coverdale isn’t a bad guy at all. So why would someone want to steal from the venerable frontman and his ‘Here I Go Again’ fortune? Because money is king, ladies and gentlemen. As the Reno Gazette-Journal reports, former Coverdale friend and associate Eric Hosmer has been sent directly to jail for embezzling more than $287,000 from the singer and his wife Cindy.

The couple told authorities that Hosner stole right under their noses by submitting fake invoices to Coverdale’s accounting firm for payment. Judge Patrick Flanagan has sentenced the 44-year-old Hosmer to 6-months hard time and ordered him to pay $69,000 in restitution. And to add insult to injury, the Coverdale’s treated Hosmer “like family.” But now they are insistent he is a “deceiver, liar and thief.”

According to Blabbermouth, said thief had been arrested by the Washoe County, Nev. Sheriff’s office back in March (2011) when he was first charged with stealing. Looks like Hosner just got bit by the snake.
