Mike Goodson Will Plead Not Guilty to All Charges

Jim McIsaac

Jets running back Mike Goodson will plead not guilty to all five criminal charges he faces stemming from last week's arrest.

Goodson has been charged with unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of a loaded handgun, possession of hollow-point ammunition, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia following a traffic stop in Denville early on Friday morning.

Fusco said he is confident his client will avoid jail time, with the main issue being the ownership of the .45 caliber handgun found in the SUV. The gun was loaded with hollow-point bullets. He claims that the drugs do not belong to Goodson, either.

I don't really have many thoughts on this at the moment. We are still not sure what the facts are. The smart thing to do is probably to wait and let this play out instead of rushing to an opinion. That seems to be what the Jets are doing and rightly so.
