A millionaire from Houston convicted of a deadly drunken-driving accident is set to be sentenced today in Florida.

A jury found John Goodman guilty of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide for the 2010 crash in West Palm Beach, Florida. Goodman adopted his adult girlfriend to shield some of his assets from a lawsuit but has since settled the suit with the victim's family.

The 48-year old millionaire could get 30 years in prison. He is now being housed in an area reserved for high-profile inmates at a Florida County jail.
