John Goodman arrives for jury selection

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX)-  Jury selection is set to begin Tuesday in the criminal case of Wellington polo mogul John Goodman.
    
The 48-year-old could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted of driving drunk and killing 23-year-old Scott Wilson two years ago.

Wilson's family is expected to enter the courthouse for the start of what will likely be a difficult trial.

They'll come face-to-face with the man charged with killing their son.

A larger than usual pool of potential jurors is expected. The court needs to find six jury members and alternates who have not already made up their mind about Goodman from what they've seen or heard in the media.

High-profile attorney Roy Black is Goodman's head defense lawyer.
 
The prosecutor, Ellen Roberts, is a veteran traffic homicide attorney.
