Affluenza: Shaun Goodman Sentenced to 364 Days in Work Release Program After His 7th DUI


CNN interviews Paul Strophy, attorney for wealthy business owner, Shaun Goodman, was sentenced to 364 days in a work release program after being arrested for his seventh DUI.

Shaun Goodman was arrested last December after a police chase in Washington state that reached speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour when Henry Griffen, a passenger in the Ferrari driven by Goodman, jumped out of the car when Goodman slowed down to negotiate a turn. Griffen then dialed 911.

Instead of facing jail time, Goodman was sentenced to a year of work release. The sentence last week involves a one year of work release, which allows him to spend his days freely — but requires him to spend nights in the Thurston County Jail. The judge said in a statement that Goodman is an important businessman in the community and that “it wouldn’t be fair for him [and] his employees would suffer if he went to real jail.”
