Pearl Jam’s Former CFO Sentenced to 14 Months in Prison for Embezzlement

Rickey Goodrich, a former financial executive for Pearl Jam’s organization, has been sentenced to 14 months in prison for making off with about $300,000 of the band’s money.

Back in December, he was charged with 33 counts of theft after private investigators discovered he had siphoned cash to pay off personal debts, vacations, trips to the spa, high-end wine and more.
