Convicted multi-millionaire John Goodman was sentenced to 16 years in prison
for a DUI manslaughter Friday — but instead of living in a small
cell with prison food and inmates, Goodman will be released to live in
luxury. The cost of freedom: $7 million.
Once he posts bond, he's allowed to return to his 100-plus acre estate,
to his tennis courts and swimming pool, while his attorneys work on his
appeal. Goodman will also dish out extra cash for his electronic bracelet
and an off-duty cop to watch him 24/7.
