Near the end of last year, Shaun Goodman – a wealthy Olympia business owner – slid into his Ferrari (yeah, he drives a Ferrari) and led police on a high speed chase through city streets that, according to the police report, sometimes approached 100 mph. A passenger who had the misfortune of hitching a ride with Goodman actually leapt from the moving vehicle while police were still in pursuit because he was afraid he was going to die. Given his state and the speeds at which he was going, it should come to no surprise that Goodman’s race against the law ended with him crashing into two cars, jumping a curb and smashing into the side of a house.
When police arrested Goodman, they found his BAC to be twice the legal limit. It would mark his 7th DUI conviction.
However, Judge Christine Schaller gave Goodman a year of work release. Defense attorney Paul Strophy argued that Goodman's business would fail and his client's employees would be out of a job if Goodman wasn't present for work.
Judge James Dixon allowed the criminal to attend the Super Bowl in New York City, despite previously denying Goodman's request to attend a soccer competition in Nevada.
the judge who decided that it would not be fair for a 7 time offender to actually go to jail.
