Hearing set in assault weapons case


WATERLOO — A hearing will be held in the case of a Geneva man accused of having stolen assault weapons in Seneca Falls last September.

During an appearance by Gary Goodman in Seneca County Court Monday, Judge Dennis Bender scheduled a suppression hearing for March 29. Goodman is being represented by local attorney Steven Getman.

Goodman, 56, of 133 Elm St., was arrested Sept. 28 by Seneca Falls police following an investigation into rifles that were reported stolen earlier that month from an apartment on Peterman Road in the town. Also arrested was a woman living with Goodman at the time, 41-year-old Christine Maddox.

Goodman faces charges of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. The weapons charge, a class D felony, is punishable by up to seven years in prison....Getman, however, plans to contest statements Maddox made to police and prosecutors in the case against Goodman.

“Her confession is basically an indictment of my client,” he said.
