Jury Selection Continues In Polo Mogul’s DUI/Manslaughter Trial
South Florida Crime
WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) – It’s day two of jury selection in the trial of a wealthy Palm Beach polo mogul accused of drunken-driving manslaughter.
Dozens of potential jurors streamed through court in West Palm Beach on Monday in the first day of jury selection in the case of John Goodman.
Goodman is charged in the death two years ago of 23-year-old Scott Wilson.
Police say a drunken Goodman rammed his black Bentley convertible into Wilson’s car, causing it to roll into a canal, where the young man died. Goodman is accused of leaving the scene and waiting nearly an hour to call 911.
He could face 30 years in prison if convicted.
