Report says Portsmouth officer violated code of ethics

An independent report says Portsmouth police officer Aaron Goodwin violated the department's code of ethics and his supervisors gave him bad advice when he took a $2 million dollar inheritance from Geraldine Webber, a 92-year-old woman he befriended before she died.

Goodwin and Webber's family are battling over the woman's estate, valued at over $2 million dollars.

A court hearing on the case concluded earlier this year, but a judge hasn't ruled yet in the case.

The police department is standing by Goodwin, releasing a statement that reads in part: "For those who may have lost trust in your department, I am truly sorry. But please understand this: Portsmouth is being protected by ethical, well-trained and educated professionals."
