Goodman Trial Verdict

Wellington Polo Club founder John Goodman was found guilty of DUI Manslaughter after 4 hours of jury deliberations. Judge Colbath ordered that Goodman be taken into custody immediately pending sentencing. The judge also commented that he would make himself available to a hearing on Goodman’s request for an appellate bond, which he suspected would be forthcoming.

This was the second trial for Goodman, who was tried in 2012 for the 2010 death of Scott Patrick Wilson after Goodman’s car crashed into Wilson’s, propelling Wilson’s car into a canal where Wilson ultimately drowned. It was not until one hour later that Goodman called 911. In the first trial, Goodman was found guilty of DUI Manslaughter with failure to render aid after 6 hours of jury deliberations. The case was appealed due to juror misconduct and ultimately retried.


Casey Reiter is an associate attorney at Stuart R. Manoff & Associates, P.A. in West Palm Beach, Florida, practicing in the areas of Criminal Defense and Marital Law.
