Godwin's wife Linda who was also jailed with him for mistreating the same 13 year old old girl, for 15 years, was not that lucky. Godwin was said to have attempted suicide twice in prison, but for the vigilance of the prison officials, while all he owned in France has been confiscated by the French authorities, his children also are living with different families in France now, while a 17 year old son of his is said to be dying of cancer, and has very little chance of recovery. The ex-footballer is said to have become born again while in Prison. One hopes, he would have the strength to get back up, after all the tragedies.
