On March 23, 2012 Wellington Polo Millionaire John Goodman was convicted by a jury of DUI Manslaughter, a first degree felony.
John Goodman, 48, is facing a potential 30 years in prison at sentencing which was scheduled for this week.
However, the judge presiding over the case is under siege by a barrage of defense motions.
A jury convicted Goodman, 48, of the first-degree felony on March 23 after less than six hours of deliberations, finding Goodman was intoxicated when his Bentley smashed into a car driven by Scott Wilson, 23, in February 2010, flipping Wilson's car into a canal and drowning him.
Goodman's sentencing, in which he faces up to 30 years in prison, was initially set for Monday afternoon.
It now appears that sentencing won't take place any time soon – as an increasingly complex legal battle unfolds. Meanwhile, Goodman remains in the Palm Beach County Jail without bail.
Since the swift conviction, Goodman's defense team – including Miami attorney Roy Black – has filed a series of motions citing fatal flaws in the proceedings.
The defense wanted a new trial, to have Goodman released on bond while he appeals, to question jurors about alleged misconduct and, in the latest legal maneuver, to have the judge step down because of alleged bias against the defendant.
Lets wait and see what comes next!
