Pearl Jam Ex-Exec Sentenced to Prison for Embezzling from Band

Rickey Goodrich sentenced to 14 months in prison after pleading guilty to six counts of first-degree theft

A former financial officer of Pearl Jam’s management company has been sentenced to 14 months in prison for embezzling more than $300,000 from the band.

The Seattle Times reports that Superior Court Judge Roger Rogoff agreed Friday to allow Rickey Goodrich to remain free for two weeks to get his financial affairs in order. Goodrich will return in two weeks for formal sentencing.

His lawyer had sought probation.

The 55-year-old man pleaded guilty in December to six counts of first-degree theft. Prosecutors say he used company accounts to pay personal debts and fund lavish family vacations.

Prosecutors say he has already paid back $125,000 and has agreed to pay more in restitution.

Court papers say Goodrich worked as chief financial officer for Curtis Inc., the management company owned by the band’s manager Kelly Curtis. The Times says Goodrich was fired in September 2010.
