NEW CONTEST: How Much Prison Time For John Goodman?

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.

    TIME served after second trial thanks to sleazy lawyers PAY-OFF ! hOW MUCH MONEY WILL GOODMAN PAY ? Peanutz !

    • Mindy says

      I agree with the sleazy lawyers pay off—- John Goodman killed a young boy. Has payed Black,and crew millions to try to make it all go away.He has spent his life thinking his money can buy him anything,or anyone.
      He needs to be held accountable.He is just a waster drunken druggie.He should get full 30 and the world will go on better without him.
      The Wilsons will never have their precious son back—- never.

      Quite blaming Jose,he is just running a business. Blame that revoltiing Goodman and crew

        Mindy, I’m disappointed….I read earlier you were so above the crowds on these blogs and would therefore not stoop to our level. And here I thought you were a woman of your word. Sigh.

    I think he will get 30, but will get out early for being a good man in prison. I think he will do at least ten long years
