WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Sentencing has been delayed for a South Florida polo mogul found guilty in a fatal drunken-driving crash.

A judge said Wednesday he needs more time in the case of 51-year-old John Goodman, who was convicted in a retrial last month of DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide.

The Palm Beach Post reports ( Goodman is due back in court Friday.

Police say a drunken Goodman ran a stop sign in February 2010 and rammed his black Bentley into 23-year-old Scott Patrick Wilson’s car, causing it to roll into a canal, where the young man died.

Authorities said Goodman left the scene and waited nearly an hour to call 911.

Goodman was sentenced to 16 years in prison after his first conviction, which was overturned because of a juror’s misconduct.
