WAKULLA — Imprisoned Wellington polo mogul John Goodman found religion!
Goodman, 52, who killed a recent college graduate in a DUI crash in 2010 in Wellington, has just been transferred to what the state’s Department of Corrections describes as a “faith and character based” prison.
There, the trust-funding millionaire is being mentored by volunteers who are supposed to teach him how to be a good, productive member of society.
The medium security institution is home to about 1,400 men and for the past ten years has been a Faith and Character Based Institution, something jailbirds refer to as FCBI.
Unless he wins an appeal or he is transferred again, Texas native Goodman is schedule to be at the camp until February 2030.
He was found guilty of DUI manslaughter and vehicular manslaughter and sentenced to 16 years in 2014 the death of motorist Scott Wilson at an intersection in rural Wellington.
Goodman was found guilty after two trials in which he blamed the accident on his Bentley, claiming the engine malfunctioned and caused the car to surge forward and crash into Wilson.
