American Idol 2013 Spoilers: Curtis Finch Jr Arrested In Church Theft!




The man that is a preacher’s son that sings gospel music like it’s his job on American Idol 2013 and supposedly takes us all to this special place when he opens his mouth was charged with a felony back in 2010 after stealing a laptop from a church event??? That’s right folks, Curtis Finch, Jr. was arrested back in 2010 and charged with a class C felony, that was later dropped to a misdemeanor when he pled guilty. Actual court records on Curtis can be seen below, thanks to an exclusive report from Wetpaint.

American Idol 2013 - Curtis Finch Jr

I never liked this guy and knew there was something wrong with him. He was arrogant and his true colors shined through during Hollywood Week when Charlie Askew, his group member at the time, became ill and Curtis just thought it was a great opportunity to focus on himself and take out an opponent! I want to smack his smug face every week when he sings, but this just cracks me up.

He acts like this amazing singer and he is singing for God. Mariah Carey praises him week in and week out, but maybe she will be preaching a new tune? In the court records that Wetpaint obtained from JD Evans, on behalf of Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch, the victim “reported his laptop computer stolen from his book bag while he attended a choral event at a church in Shiloh, Illinois.” To show how stupid Curtis is, he then went and offered to sell it to another one of the students!

That student contacted the victim and the sting was set-up by Richmond Heights police. Up walks Curtis with the stolen laptop and he was arrested on the spot and charged with the class C felony, which was dropped when he pled guilty to a class A misdemeanor, according to Evans: “Our records and those of the Missouri Courts show he pled guilty to the amended charge of receiving stolen property.” Because of the lesser charge, Curtis Finch, Jr. was able to avoid any jail time, but he paid a $1,000 fine and $10 civil judgement fee, which I am sure his preacher father tried to sweep under the rug real quick!

    I never liked the guy either and I’m thrilled that he was the first to be voted off. His selfish, arrogant comment about Charlie was a big clue that Finch was a loser. Now this laptop theft proves it. What a “religious” hypocrite! His singing was only average anyway. Why Mariah and that airhead Niki thought he was so great, I’ll never know. Randy also praised him too much but he does that for a lot of singers for a reason that’s been obvious over the years.

        I’m pretty sure if Paul Jolley stole a laptop from a church event and was charged with a felony we’d be writing about it. Find the details and send them my way and I will write it up!

    Aren’t they suppose to run background checks on contestants?! Why does this keep happening again and again? Curtis denied someone else more deserving to be in the Top 20/Top 10 and I’ve never understood what the hype was all about with his singing. It wasn’t any good and there’s a reson why he got dropped last season! I’ve never liked him and always felt that sooner or later everyone would get to see what an imposter he truly is. So glad he’s eliminated, GOOD RIDDANCE!!!
