Hearing postponed for ex-Pearl Jam exec accused of theft

Today’s arraignment for the former chief financial officer for Pearl Jam’s management company, who is accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the band,  has been postponed, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

Rickey Goodrich, who is charged with 25 counts of first-degree theft and and eight counts of second-degree theft, will now be arraigned on July 11 at the King County Courthouse.

Goodrich, 54, of Novato, Calif., is accused of bilking the band’s management company out of at least $380,000 between October 2007 and June 2010, when his alleged embezzlement was discovered by another band accountant, charging papers say.

Goodrich was hired by Pearl Jam Touring Co. in 2005; the next year he was named chief financial officer for Curtis Inc., the management company owned by the band’s manager, Kelly Curtis, the papers say.

Curtis Inc., and not the band, is the named victim in all 33 counts, the papers show.
