Judge orders ex-Portsmouth officer Goodwin to pay $10K in Webber inheritance case

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A former Portsmouth police officer whose $2 million inheritance from a woman's disputed will was overturned has been ordered to pay more than $10,000.

A judge in August dismissed Geraldine Webber's 2012 will and trust, saying that former police Sgt. Aaron Goodwin acted on Webber's "fears and hopes" to extract her inheritance, which included a waterfront home, Cadillac, stocks and bonds.

The Portsmouth Herald reports a judge ordered Goodwin to pay about $10,000 spent transcribing depositions from witnesses for the 10-day trial. The costs were incurred by an attorney who represented Webber's beneficiaries.

Goodwin, through his attorney, objected to paying the costs, saying the probate case was filed against Webber's estate and not him.
