This brings new meaning to the word slime and is causing worldwide outrage. Back in 2010 the extremely wealthy founder of the International Polo Club Palm Beach, John Goodman, crashed into 23-year-old Scott Wilson. He killed the young man and it turns out it was because Goodman was two times the legal alcohol limit.
In an attempt to shield his wealth before his upcoming civil suit, he came up with a plan. The 48-year-old decided to legally adopt his 42-year-old longtime girlfriend, Laruso Hutchins, as his daughter. This has angered the mother of the victim and all involved. To avoid paying the family for their loss he goes this far…Who does this? Is money worth more than a life?
Goodman reportedly left the scene of the crash, after running a stop sign and totaling the victims vehicle. But what’s worse is that he waited over 50 minutes to report the accident to police. This just shows his character, even intoxicated people with morals, would have known to immediately call for help.
Goodman was later arrested and charged with a DUI, vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a crash. In March he will also head to criminal court, on charges of DUI manslaughter, and could spend up to 30 years in prison.
While it is good to “stand by your man”, his girlfriend is just as guilty of having a cold heart. Why would she protect a heartless killer who clearly felt no guilt in killing an innocent young man.
Shame on them both. This is intolerable behavior and they both should be punished harshly for trying to avoid taking responsibility. The only thing that holds true, she could actually be his daughter, because she obviously has no conscience either. Since she went along with his scheme, she is just as guilty.
Hopefully the jury will take the key and burn it. And who allowed this adoption to go through anyway? Shame on them too!
