UPDATE: SORRY ALL, I’VE GOT TO SHUT DOWN THIS CONTEST UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. JUDGE JEFFREY COLBATH DECIDED ON APRIL 20 TO HOLD A HEARING PERTAINING TO JOHN GOODMAN’S REQUEST FOR A NEW TRIAL ON APRIL 30, INSTEAD OF THE SENTENCING. STAY TUNED. WE’LL GET IT CRANKING AGAIN WHEN A NEW SENTENCING DATE IS ANNOUNCED. THANK YOU.
Wellington polo owner John Goodman is to be sentenced April 30 after being convicted of DUI manslaughter. He was also found guilty of leaving the scene of the crash while fellow motorist Scott Wilson drowned in a canal.
In Goodman’s dubious honor, Gossip Extra launches a new contest: Guess how much prison time Goodman will be sentenced to!
The prize is a $100-gift certificate to Best Buy. You have until 11:59 p.m., April 29 to enter. No entry will be accepted after midnight April 30. Please follow the rules precisely:

You must tell how many years, months and days in prison you believe Judge Jeffrey Colbath will sentence Goodman. Do not include probation, house arrest or any other part of the sentence. The winner will either have guessed the exact period of time, or the closest.
3. There’ll be only one winner. So, please answer this tie-breaking answer: How many page views do you believe Gossip Extra will have received between its start on Oct. 16, 2011, and 11.59 p.m., April 29.

5. This contest will be shut down and no winner declared if: Goodman dies before sentencing (Remember, he was on suicide watch!); The date of the sentencing is changed or the hearing cancelled; The hearing turns into another type of proceeding and no sentence is handed down; News of the sentence leaks out before April 30; and if Goodman gets no prison time.
You may enter more than once, for as long that you sign up for the dirt alerts with a different email address each time.
