Preliminary hearing set for convicted sex offender

A preliminary hearing has been set for Oct. 10 for registered sex offender John Justice Goodman, 80, of Colusa, who has been out of jail on $100,000 bail since April.

Goodman was arrested by a Colusa County Sheriff’s Deputy in the area of Highway 45 on Oct. 30, 2017 on suspicion of possessing material that depicts a person under 18 years of age personally engaging in or simulating sexual conduct. He was held in the Colusa County Jail for nearly six months before bail was granted by the court.

Goodman had previously served four years in state prison for a 2010 conviction for lewd or lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14, before being released in 2015, according to the California Megan’s Law website, where Goodman is required to register for life.

Possession of child pornography is a violation of the terms of Goodman’s parole, and could send him back to prison if he is found guilty, officials said.

Goodman appeared in Colusa County Superior Court on June 27 for the setting of his preliminary hearing, during which Colusa County Deputy District Attorney Brendan Farrell said the DA’s office is prepared to offer Goodman a plea deal.

Goodman is represented by Michael Wise, of Sacramento, and will next appear in Colusa County Superior Court on July 25, where he could either take the deal or ask to proceed to the preliminary hearing.

While out on bail, Goodman is not allowed to possess child pornography or any electronic devise that would allow him access to the Internet, according the terms of his release. He is to obey all laws, and is prohibited from being within 100 yards of a school, a child, or any area children congregate. Goodman is allowed to be in any public place, such as a restaurant or store, providing he is there for a lawful purpose and for a reasonable amount of time. n
