Cantonment Man Sentenced For DUI In February Wreck

October 11, 2017

A Cantonment man has been sentenced on a DUI charge related to a single vehicle wreck last February.

The Florida Highway Patrol said  43-year old Daniel Goodale lost control on Jacks Branch Road near Old Bridge Road, ran off the roadway and struck a culvert about 12:15 a.m on February 26. Officials said  his 2003 Nissan Altima then went airborne for almost 100 feet before crashing into a ditch. Goodale was trapped in the vehicle after it came to rest on its side. It took firefighters about 30 minutes to stabilize the vehicle and free him from the wreckage.

Goodale pleaded no contest to DUI 0.15 or higher. He was sentenced to 12 months supervised probation, ordered to pay fines and court costs of $1,456 and attend DUI school. His driver’s license was also revoked for six months. file photos by Kristi Barbour, click to enlarge.

    @ willy, looks like he had no other choice but to admit to the crime since they had to free him from the wreckage! The slap on the wrist is what I can’t get over!

    at least he admitted to the crime, unlike so many today that try to blame others or can’t be accountable for what they do. Hoping this makes him think about it before he repeats. Good luck
