One tennis official said she thinks Goodman must be innocent.

“I’ve worked with her for years, and I don’t believe any of this,” Annette Buck, director of adult and senior tennis at the U.S. Tennis Association, told the Los Angeles Times.

Goodman appeared late Tuesday in Manhattan Criminal Court, where she agreed to waive an extradition hearing so she could be returned quickly to Los Angeles to face the charges.

She was led into the courthouse in handcuffs, wearing her official U.S. Open clothes, a dark blue Ralph Lauren sweat suit, according to the New York Post. She showed no emotion and spoke only to give brief answers to a judge’s questions.

If convicted, Goodman could be sentenced to life in prison. It was not clear when she would be returned to Los Angeles. Prosecutors said they would ask for $1 million bail.
