Prosecution rests in polo mogul DUI case

The prosecution has rested its case against the wealthy South Florida polo mogul accused in the DUI manslaughter death of a 23-year-old man.

John Goodman, the founder of the International Polo Club in Palm Beach, is charged in the Feb. 12, 2010, crash that killed Scott Wilson.

Prosecutors say a drunken Goodman crashed his Bentley convertible into Wilson’s car, causing it to roll into a canal where Wilson drowned.

Goodman’s defense team began presenting its arguments Monday, with attorneys saying they will only need about a day and half to complete their case. The jury could begin deliberating as early as Wednesday.

Goodman adopted his girlfriend, Heather Colby, in February to protect his assets. Colby testified last week but wasn't questioned about the adoption.

 

 

 

 

Goodman faces up to 30 years in prison if found guilty in the crash.
