Michael Goodale, the Kingman resident who calls recently re-elected Republican state Representative Doris Goodale "mom," is looking at some prison time after pleading guilty to a charge related to a Kingman Police Department heroin-trafficking investigation.

According to the local paper of record, the Kingman Daily Miner, Michael Goodale pleaded guilty to "attempting to transport narcotic drugs for sale," in a plea agreement that locks him up for 3 1/2 years.

Kingman police said in May that the investigation was centered on people bringing "substantial amounts" of heroin from Las Vegas to Kingman to sell to dealers and users.

Goodale and three of the other people arrested were popped near Highway 68 in Golden Valley as the buyers and sellers were meeting, and Goodale was identified as one of the alleged buyers of the heroin coming from Vegas.

His sister, Stephanie Goodale, was arrested at a home in Kingman on felony charges related to the investigation.

Her case is still pending, but the Miner says "prosecutors said they wouldn't offer a deal that doesn't include prison time."

At the time of the investigation, police served search warrants on two cars and a house owned by Representative Goodale and her husband and some unspecified drug evidence was picked up there.

Cops recovered a half-ounce of heroin, $6,000, and two cars from their haul.

Representative Goodale's husband, William Goodale, died in October. He was a member of the Kingman Unified School District Board.

As a mom, I feel bad that he has problems that I am sure break his mother's heart - even though his mistakes are self-inflicted. With his rep goodale's husband dying then her son going to prison, I am sure this has been a difficult time for her. You guys are a bit rougher than I am. 


Will they be in the same prison as Gould's son or Pearce's kid?  Or in the same "hospital" as Brewers rapist son?

What is it with elected officials in AZ and the FACT they raise criminals?  Bennett's son should poke a few of them in the ass with a broomstick it seems!

(BTW, Cathi Herrod and other idiots seem to love these people....  Why is that?)


I love our Republican legislatures - they want to tell me how to raise my children yet they seem to be utter failures in raising their own.


@LegitQuestions It's called the "Do as I say, not as I do" principle.  Based on what I've noticed about many republicans, rules seem to be for non-members only.
