He’s going to be sentenced on April 30 but the Palm Beach Post reports that the wealthy businessman will pay Wilson’s family the multi-million dollar sum rather than go through another court case even though he went to extraordinary lengths to hold onto his fortune.
Goodman’s lawyers are now pleading to Judge Jeffrey Colbath to release their client while he appeals his conviction.
The remainder will be paid by the 48-year-old’s insurance company.
The money will be split between Lili and her ex-husband William Wilson, Scott’s dad.
Lili’s lawyer Christian Searcy says Goodman was a “desperate man [grabbing] at any straw” by using the substantial payout as a way to keep himself out of prison.
