Former bassist sentenced to seven years

Bassist and music producer Richard Finch, a former member of KC and the Sunshine Band, has been sentenced in Ohio to seven years in prison for sex charges involving teen boys. Finch entered pleas of no contest in Licking County Common Pleas Court on Monday.† Finch apologized to a judge and the teens, saying he had little memory of the activities because he was impaired by alcohol. The multiple Grammy Award winner was arrested in March after police said a boy reported that he’d had sexual contact with Finch at the man’s home in Newark in central Ohio.
