Goodman may be released Monday

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Wellington Polo mogul John Goodman could be walking out of the Palm Beach County jail as soon as Monday.

Goodman faces 16 years in prison for DUI manslaughter. He was convicted in March of killing Scott Wilson, 23, in a drunken car crash in 2010.

But his defense team has already started the appeal process hoping to overturn the conviction.
Shortly after receiving his sentence on Friday, Goodman was granted a $7 million bond. Judge Jeffrey Colbath is expected to look over the terms of Goodman's release Monday.

Goodman will be watched around the clock by off-duty cops. He'll undergo drug tests and wear an electronic monitor.

He will also be restricted to his home and place of work while out on bail.

It remains unclear exactly when he'll leave jail, but it could be as soon as Monday.
