John Goodman Trial: Some Reading Material While You Wait for the Verdict
The jury in the murder trial of Wellington polo mogul John Goodman began deliberations earlier today. There's no telling how long it will take them to decide whether Goodman is guilty of vehicular homicide and DUI manslaughter in connection with the car accident that killed Scott Wilson two years ago, but if you've got some time to kill, here's a collection of other pieces by reporter Lisa Rab:
"I hit something, and it had to have been another car," [Goodman] told the dispatcher. "I'm just at somebody's barn. I feel horrible. And they think I'm crazy."
The "something" he'd hit was a Hyundai driven by 23-year-old Scott Patrick Wilson, a University of Central Florida graduate who had been driving home to Wellington to visit his family. The force of the crash capsized Wilson's car, tossing it into a drainage ditch. Trapped in the driver's seat for nearly an hour as Pembleton and Goodman talked, Wilson drowned before rescuers could reach him.
