- Two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a felony
- Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree, a felony
- Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, a misdemeanor
Goodwin was arraigned in Syracuse City Court and taken back to jail on Friday.
