Rickey Charles Goodrich, the former chief financial officer at Pearl Jam's management company, Curtis Management, was sentenced to 14 months in prison for stealing from the band.
Goodrich was sentenced after pleading guilty to six counts of first-degree theft, after being charged with stealing $380,000 from the management company over a four-year period prior to his firing in 2010.
The Seattle Police department determined that his thefts had cost the management company a total of $566,000, including investigative expenses, according to Seattlepi.com
They also report that if Goodrich had paid back the money before the sentencing hearing last Friday (February 28), the prosecutors were to ask that he only be sentenced to six month. He ultimately received the 14 month sentence after failing to pay all of the money back.
