KC and the Sunshine Band pop star held over teenage boy sex claims
Thursday 25 March 2010
A music producer and co-founder of KC and the Sunshine Band responsible for such hits as Shake Your Booty and Keep It Comin' Love acknowledged having sex with teenage boys, US police said.
Richard R. Finch, 56, was arrested on Tuesday after a boy told authorities he'd had sexual contact with him at Finch's home in Newark, the Licking County sheriff's office said. The boy made the revelation last week.
Finch, while being interviewed at the sheriff's office, admitted he'd had sex with that boy and others ranging in age from 13 to 17, police said.
Finch, a former bass player for the band and a seven-time Grammy Award winner, was being held at the sheriff's office on 250,000 US dollars bond.
A message posted on the website of Richard Finch Productions said the allegations against the producer were baseless.
"We will let due process happen through the legal system," it said, "and through that, we are sure Mr Finch will be vindicated from these unfounded allegations."
No date had been set for Finch's arraignment, said Sergeant Kevin Biller, who wouldn't disclose the evidence that led to Finch's arrest or the possible charges against him.
