NEWARK, Ohio— The man behind pop-music classics Get Down Tonight and Boogie Shoes has been arrested in Licking County and accused of having sexual contact with a teenage boy. Richard Finch, 56, co-founder of KC and the Sunshine Band, was arrested Tuesday by deputies with the Licking County sheriff's office. He is being held on a $250,000 bond on a charge of gross sexual imposition, according to court records.

A boy contacted the sheriff's office last week, saying Finch had sexual contact with him at Finch's home, Sgt. Chris Slayman said.

Finch admitted to having sexual contact with the boy as well as several other boys ages 13 to 17,

Are there really any teenage boys naive enough to go to a filthy old fag's house and not know he wants sex with them?

Perhaps the obamanation administration will consider hiring him as "Assistant Safe School Czar".

Obama's "Safe School Czar" Kevin
"use a condom" Jennings
__________________________________________________________

From the Washington Times...

EDITORIAL: At the president's pleasure
'Safe school czar' encouraged child sex with an older man
September 28, 2009

A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man." At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's "safe school czar". It's getting hard to keep track of all of this president's problematic appointments. Clearly, the process for vetting White House employees has broken down.

In this one case in which Mr. Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, he not only failed to do what the law required but actually encouraged the relationship.

According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night. When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape "unethical." Mr. Jennings' defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was aware the student had sex with the older man.

However, the new audiotape contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated."

Mr. Jennings' denials about these events reveal a lack of remorse. He has not admitted that he made mistakes in this case, and he now refuses to answer any questions about the scandal. Don't forget, this is a presidential appointee we're talking about. Mr. Obama should make clear what his standards are for public servants serving at the pleasure of the president. Encouraging and covering up man-boy sexual activity are serious offenses. The White House should force Mr. Jennings to come clean.

let’s see if you can pick up on what went wrong?

Janet Lieb is the manager of her son’s band, To Be Continued, which has recorded at Finch’s studio on three occasions.

The band traveled to Ohio from their hometown of Dubuque, Iowa,

a couple of years ago after meeting Finch through their MySpace page.

I understand the gravity of the charges, and I'm not trying to make light of them, but...

....there is a Licking county??

In the state of Kentucky, and this is the God's Honest truth, where Beaver Road and Big Bone Road meet, there is a Big Bone Lick State Park.

oh good grief lighten up and look at the post i responded to. it is possible to decry sexual abuse and to still laugh about the names of the roadways etc. i refuse to bow to this type of PC crap, which is what i’d expect of a liberal. because someone can make light of something in this story in no way connotes a support for or lack of outrage about the crime involved. this is FREE REPUBLIC, if i have to preface a post with a disclaimer that i hate the idea of sexual abuse of a minor before responding that is just SAD.

"If this guy had been a Catholic Priest it would have been front on the NYT and WaPo."

And then as usual, the Catholic church would hide this guy in Bumwad Eygpt, and we'de never hear about him again until after he diddled some more little boys there.
