Teen found guilty in murder of Catholic U. student
A D.C. teenager has been found guilty in the murder of a Catholic University student in Petworth.
Neil Godleski, 31, was gunned down in Sherman Circle shortly after midnight August 2010 while biking home from the restaurant where he worked as a waiter.
Prosecutors said Eric D. Foreman fired multiple shots at Godleski, then stood over the college student and fired two more shots. Foreman raked through Godleski's pockets, stole $60 and fled. The motive was robbery, police said.
Godleski's family has filed a $20 million wrongful death suit against the District, claiming that Foreman, then 16, was supposed to be under the supervision of the city at the time of the shooting.

Daniel Drinan, of Reno, apologized and allegedly said he decided to touch himself because the lights were out, no one was next to him and he was tired, according to the criminal complaint.
