Former judge's son wanted for domestic battery charge may have fled state

A former Will County judge’s son who is wanted on felony domestic battery charges may have fled the state, police said.

Louis D. Goode, 33, has been wanted by the authorities since Oct. 31 after allegedly abusing his wife, whom he was previously convicted of attacking in 2014. Goode is the son of former Will County Judge Carla Alessio Policandriotes.

Will County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Dan Jungles said deputies are in the process of trying to track down Goode.

“We believe he has fled the state and we’re doing everything in our power to locate him, but we do not believe he is in the area,” Jungles said.

Jungles declined to say which state deputies believe Goode might have fled to.

Court records show Goode was in Missouri at one point, where he was charged with possession of a controlled substance. On Aug. 23, the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office declared Goode a fugitive from justice.

Goode was released from the Will County jail on Aug. 25 after Will County judge Chrystel Gavlin learned the Missouri warrant for his arrest was quashed and recalled.

Goode’s wife filed for divorce on Nov. 13. The couple married on July 17, 2016, about two months after Goode pleaded guilty to domestic battery and unlawful restraint.
