Rickey C Goodrich, a former financial manager for Pearl Jam, has been sentenced to 14 months in jail, according to The Seattle Times.

Goodrich, who pleaded guilty to theft charges in December, stole $380,000 dollars from the band from 2006 until he was fired in September 2010.

According to Rolling Stone, Superior Court Judge Roger Rogoff agreed to delay finalizing the sentence for two weeks so that Goodrich could organize his financial affairs, noting that his first concern was that Goodrich pay restitution. Prosecutors said that he had paid by $125,000 at the time he pleaded guilty. Goodrich will report to jail on March 14th.
