Barbara J. Pariente C. Alan Lawson Charles T. Canady Florida Supreme Court homicide: murder/manslaughter Jane Kreusler-Walsh Jorge Labarga Peggy A. Quince R. Fred Lewis Rachel E. Nordby Ricky Polston
Mr. Goodman was charged with DUI manslaughter/failed to render aid and vehicular homicide/failed to give information or render aid after a fatal wreck in 2010. He was convicted and sentenced. At trial, he challenged FDLE’s blood alcohol rules, arguing they were inadequate. The trial court denied his motion to exclude the test results from evidence and the rule challenge was considered by the Division of Administrative Hearings. DOAH upheld the rules and the Fourth District Court of Appeal upheld that ruling. But the 4th DCA also certified issues in the case to be of great public importance for this Court’s review.
