Liam Goodenough, also known as DT on Arsenal Fan TV, released a statement following his extended prison sentence.
After an investigation by Thames Valley Police Goodenough, Goodenough was convicted on 5th November 2021 at Aylesbury crown Court of kidnapping, assault resulting in actual bodily harm, and stalking with serious alarm or distress.
Additional charges for controlling or coercive conduct in an intimate or familial relationship and disclosing personal sexual photos with the intent to cause distress were also to be filed.
Goodenough received a 12-month sentence and a 10-year restraining order.
Goodenough’s sentence was extended to three years by Solicitor General Alex Chalk, QC MP after his case was sent before the Court of Appeal.
Since 2014, the 42-year old has been a consistent contributor to AFTV.
Goodenough broke his silence by releasing a statement via Twitter “I know a lot of you would have seen the news about me this week and I know I have let a lot of you down but there are always two sides to a story and mine will be told in good time.
“After receiving guidance and help for months, I realized I was suffering from a severe mental disorder. That night, I just snapped.
“This is not me condoning my actions I am just trying to paint a picture of what was going on in my life at that time. All I ask from everyone is that you read the key parts of the report and not the sensationalised headline.
“My ex-partner is the one I can’t express my regrets for. A eight-year relationship will be remembered for nine minutes worth of madness, and I will always be sorry.
“I want everyone to remember the innocent ones in this are my children. I am in regular contact with them but my actions have turned their lives upside down. All I can do now is serve my time and be a better father and man for it.
“I have also heard about a statement that’s been released from someone that I called a friend, again I will address this and its content in due course too!
“I’m sorry to have let you down. I don’t deserve anything, but I just want to say that I am sorry.
“Take care and see you in a few years.
