Some justice for the band...
Seattle Weekly reports that Pearl Jam's former manager, Rickey Charles Goodrich, has pleaded guilty of felony theft charges after he took $380,000 from the band over four years.
Charges were filed in June. King County prosecutors said that Goodrich used his position as the chief financial officer of Pearl Jam's management company, Curtis Management, to steal the money before he was fired in September 2010. The band hired an investigator to look into his "cash flow issues" and found records of wire transfers that were paying off Goodrich's own personal debt.
