Rickey Charles Goodrich, former CFO of Pearl Jam’s management company, has been charged with 33 counts of theft. Prosecutors allege Goodrich used the company’s money to pay personal debts and used the band’s credit cards to pay for personal expenses, stealing $380,000 from the company, Curtis Management, over four years.
