Court Hearing In 2001 Gang Murder
Timothy Goyette has made attempts to withdraw his 'guilty' plea in the murder of Smulick nine years ago. Goyette was only 15 when he took part in a gang-related beating of the 16-year-old Smulick. Goyette is serving a 25-year prison term. In March, a La Crosse judge turned down requests by Goyette and co-defendant Jonathan Coryell to have their sentences reduced.
