Pearl Jam Business Manager Sentenced to Fourteen Months in Prison After Stealing From Band
The Seattle Post Intelligencer is reporting that Rickey Charles Goodrich, the former CFO at Pearl Jam’s management company was sentenced to 14 months in prison after pleading guilty to stealing upwards of $400,000 from the band.
Goodrich, who served as chief financial officer for four years, used the money to pay off his own debts as well as personal expenses such as family vacations and wine. Goodrich plead guilty to six counts of first-degree theft.
King County prosecutors were prepared to ask that Goodrich be sentenced to six months in jail if he paid back the band, but he failed to do so.
