KC and the Sunshine Band Founder Arrested, Admitted He Had Sex With Boys
Richard R. Finch, the 56-year-old co-founder of KC and the Sunshine Band, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with gross sexual imposition after a 17-year-old boy told Newark, Ohio police he was sexually assaulted by Richard.
The teenager said he met Richard through "contacts" in the music industry and was sexually assaulted several times over a couple of months.
Cops say during interrogation, Richard admitted to having sex with the teenager and several other boys between the ages of 13 and 17 years old.
The report infers that these boys supposedly went to Richard hoping to break into the music industry and he then raped then. (Sidebar: From what we hear, this is not uncommon. Almost everyone takes kneepads to auditions in the hopes they will get signed. Well, according to legend.)
Richard is currently being held on $250,000 bond and cops are not disclosing any evidence. He will also face additional charges including sexual imposition, gross sexual imposition, importuning and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Richard's Web site says, “We will let due process happen through the legal system and through that, we are sure Mr. Finch will be vindicated from these unfounded allegations.”
