Florida millionaire John Goodman was found guilty Friday after being accused of driving drunk, hitting another vehicle and running it off the road into a canal, where its driver was later found dead in his submerged car.
Goodman, 48, was found guilty on the two counts he was charged with. The first was DUI manslaughter and failure to render aid. The second was vehicular homicide and failure to give information to authorities or aid.
The Palm Beach County jury reached its verdict after about 5½ hours of deliberation, following closing arguments Thursday afternoon.
A sentencing hearing is set for April 30, with Goodman potentially facing 11½ to 30 years in prison.
Until then, Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath revoked Goodman's bond and ordered that he be detained by authorities.
The victim's mother, Lili Wilson, thanked the jury after the verdict and took solace in her belief that "justice has been served."
