Defense attorneys for one of two brothers accused of burglarizing two local stores requested and were granted a continuance this week, postponing the defendant’s next court proceeding until next month.
Keyontyli Goffney, who appeared with his brother Taleon in online gay porn, was supposed to have a motions hearing Aug. 6, but it has been rescheduled for Sept. 10.
The brothers were accused of two rooftop burglaries in February 2008. Taleon pleaded guilty last month to the crimes and was sentenced to three to eight years in prison. Both brothers have said that Keyontyli served as a lookout while Taleon broke into the stores.
