Fla. Polo Mogul Jailed for 16 Years for Fatal DUI Crash
Florida polo mogul John Goodman, who notoriously adopted his girlfriend to shield his assets, has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for killing a 23-year-old motorist while driving drunk, according to news reports from West Palm Beach.
Goodman, the 48-year-old, multi-millionaire founder of the International Polo Club Palm Beach, was also fined $10,000. He was convicted in March of DUI manslaughter, vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of the February 2010 crash in Wellington, Fla., that killed Scott Wilson, an engineering student.
After an emotional hearing, Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath apologized to the Wilson and Goodman families before pronouncing the sentence, the Palm Beach Post writes.
