EDDIE REED Pleads Guilty To Molesting Minor


LONG BEACH -- Eddie Reed, leader of the Eddie Reed Big Band was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to child molestation, reported the Long Beach Press Telegram.

"Mark Reed Ivey, known to most of his fans as Eddie Reed of Eddie Reed's Big Band and Eddie Reed's Swing Band, had pleaded guilty to two felony counts of lewd and lascivious acts upon a child younger than 14 earlier this year, but his sentencing was delayed to allow the victim and others a chance to address Long Beach Superior Court Judge Gary Ferrari," the paper reported.

Once he is released from prison, he will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, Schirmer said.
