Ex-Pearl Jam exec charged with 33 counts of theft
(CBS/AP) A former chief financial officer for Pearl Jam's management company has been charged with 33 counts of theft.
In charges filed earlier this month, 54-year-old Rickey Charles Goodrich, of Navato, Calif., is accused of using his position with Curtis Inc. to bilk the grunge rock band out of $380,000 from 2006 until he was fired in September 2010.
Goodrich's thefts cost the band $566,000, including investigative expenses, according to the report.
The seattlepi.com reports Goodrich declined to comment Tuesday. He's expected to enter a plea at his June 28 arraignment in King County Superior Court.
Prosecutors say Goodrich transferred money from company accounts to pay debts and personal expenses including family vacations and wine.
Pearl Jam, meanwhile, is currently on tour in Europe, performing in Manchester, England, on Wednesday.
