WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, Mar. 25, 2019–An appeal by International Polo Club founder John Goodman for a reduction in his 16-year prison sentence for DUI manslaughter has been denied.

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath issued a one-page denial of the 55-year-old Goodman’s request to reduce his sentence to 11 1/2 years from 16 years. No reasons were given for the denial and Goodman’s release date remains March 29, 2029.

He was convicted for a 2010 crash that killed 23-year-old University of Florida engineering graduate Scott Wilson in Wellington. Goodman’s car was found to have smashed into Wilson’s car, pushing it into a nearby canal, where he drowned. Goodman, heir to a Texas heating and air-conditioning fortune, fled from the scene and did not call for help.
