Ex-KC and the Sunshine Band Bassist Gets 7 Years in Prison for Teen Sex ChargesTelling a judge he was embarrassed, disgusted and ashamed, 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.

Bassist and music producer Richard Finch entered pleas of no contest in Licking County Common Pleas Court on Monday to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and several other charges.

His voice breaking, the 56-year-old 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. They said Finch later admitted he'd had sexual contact with boys ranging in age from 13 to 17.
