Local dentist Dr. John Goodrich was arrested last week on three felony charges and was released from custody on Tuesday afternoon.

Goodrich, 57 years old, was initially charged with rape, incest and sexual abuse committed with a child under the age of 16.

Later, two of those charges were dropped and he had to face a single count of lewd conduct with a minor child who was 16 years of age.
Doctor was arraigned on Tuesday afternoon at the Elmore County Courthouse.

It was indicated through the information presented at that hearing, that the charges come from an alleged incident that happened 20 years ago, involving a female whom he knew through personal relations.

Goodrich has to reappear in court on the morning of Sept. 20 for a preliminary hearing. It will be determined through the information at that hearing, whether he will be facing the felony charges. If convicted, he will have to face a maximum penalty of lifetime in prison and a fine of $50,000.
Deputy prosecutor Lee Fisher asked Magistrate Judge Theodore Fleming, during Tuesday’s hearing, to set Goodrich’s bond at $1 million.

His attorney Mike Crawford spoke in his defence to the judge and urged him to release Goodrich on his own recognizance. He said that the doctor has had absolutely no criminal record in the past. Additionally, the allegations against Goodrich are 20 years old and didn’t come on the surface until divorce proceedings began with the dentist and his wife, Crawford said.

Fleming took the defense attorney’s side and ordered that Goodrich be released on his own recognizance. The judge cited that the evidence in the case appeared to be scarce.
The judge ordered that Goodrich should not have any contact with the alleged victim though.

Officials at the Mountain Home Police Department emphasized that the case should remain under investigation, as per the press statement released on Tuesday.
