Polo tycoon John Goodman could be out of jail and back at his Wellington Estate as soon as today.

He's expected to be released on a $7 million bond while he appeals his DUI manslaughter conviction and 16-year prison sentence.

A jury found Goodman guilty of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide for a 2010 crash in West Palm Beach, Florida.

As part of the agreement, Goodman will pay for two off-duty sheriff's deputies to stay within 100 feet of him at all times, which will cost him about $2,000 per day.

Goodman also had to agree to exit the Wellington social scene.
