Portsmouth Herald: $2.7M will case should go to trial, police sgt. should have his day in court

Portsmouth Police Sgt. Aaron Goodwin deserves his day in court. And, if he has done nothing wrong as he has repeatedly asserted, he should want his day in court. In documents filed in probate court he has been accused of exercising undue influence over a 92-year-old Portsmouth woman with dementia to gain control and render himself the main beneficiary of her $2.7 million estate. The testimony in depositions taken from local lawyers, bankers, accountants, family, friends and neighbors has been disturbing.
