NJ Man Sentenced After Confessing to 1990 Slaying

A guilt-ridden New Jersey man who confessed this year to having killed a teenager 23 years ago has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Forty-one-year-old Steven Goff will have to serve at least half that sentence before being eligible for parole for his conviction on a charge of aggravated manslaughter.

The 41-year-old Ventnor, N.J., man had turned up at a police station in April to confess to the crime. He said he could no longer live with the guilt of having killed 15-year-old Frederick Hart and leaving him to die behind their homes in Galloway Township in May 1990.

In court Friday, The Press of Atlantic City reports that Goff told the victim’s family: “I wanted to give you your justice. You deserve to see me suffer.”
