All Is Good
Back in July, I wrote about the unfortunate circumstances striking Arizona resident Clifton Goodenough: His identity was stolen by a man who had been declared dead by an Illinois court in 1986. This man, Arthur Jones, was caught by authorities in July with using Goodenough’s social security number as a worker at the Rampart Race & Sports Book in Las Vegas.
Earlier today, Jones pleaded guilty to using a false name to obtain a driver’s license or identity card. Jones avoided trial on several other felony charges, and faces probation or one to six years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for January 31.
All is back to good for Goodenough.
