Unbelievable. I know a little bit about the history of the band being a 70's music geek, and the amount of royalties that Henry Casey (KC) and Rick Finch have garnered from the use of their music in TV & Radio commercials is somewhere in the tens of millions.--That's just their royalty take.

What in the world and why in the world was Rick Finch in Newark, Ohio of all places (he once owned a beach front mansion in Sarasota not long ago) is utterly beyond me?

His future digs won't be on a beach -- it'll be in a cell.

Maybe he lost his fortune with all the other people who was scamed out of their Millions. Why else would he be in this state!

Ohio is easy on sex offenders. I be a rich person for each one that said "I did not do it!" Need to get tough on this crime. I would not want it happening to any of my family members. Its only logical to have them fixed to include the women who get caught in this type of crime.

Rick had no royalties coming in fron the KCSB Era. KC screwed him out of that in the 80's with a few crooked lawyers. He has never owned a beachfront mansion in Sarasota, dont know where you get your info, but it is not correct. He moved to Newark to open up a studio because Florida is over run with them. Only place Rick had ever lived in Florida was Miami- Hialeah and Opa Locka ( all in the Miami Area). I do know that a couple of kids were trying to scam money out of him. Guess they thought he was still wealthy. This is definitely a career killer either way. Im not his Judge, Nor jury, nor am I god.
