    Taleon Goffney will serve three to eight years for burglary.

    They were known as gay porn stars who occasionally shared the screen but the Goffney twins were stealing more than just the occasional movie scene and at least one brother will now serve time for his dirty deeds.

    Taleon Goffney, was sent to prison for three to eight years for a pair of rooftop burglaries in South Philly last year.

    The sentence for 27-year-old porn prince was part of a negotiated plea. He pleaded guilty to two counts each of burglary and criminal conspiracy but other charges including criminal trespass, receiving stolen property and possession of an instrument of crime were dropped in exchange for his pleas. He faced up to 40 years in prison if he let the case go to trial.

    "Thank you for your lenience in accepting my plea," Goffney, of Pennsauken, N.J., told a judge in court Wednesday. "These crimes won't be happening again."

    His twin brother Keyontyli was also charged for his role in rooftop robberies. Taleon identified Keyontyli as his driver and lookout in the burglaries, said the Advocate.

    It wasn't clear if Keyontyli planned to negotiate a plea.

    He was due in court Aug. 6. Neither his lawyer, Gerald Stein, nor Assistant Philadelphia District Attorney Caroline Keating immediately returned calls to the AP Thursday.

    The Goffneys appeared in some hardcore gay porn videos including "BlackBalled 5," according to the Advocate. They were arrested last year after they were seen breaking into a beauty shop, police said.

    The brothers appeared in Internet porn videos under the names Teyon and Keyon, said Erik Schut, of Philadelphia-based video retailer TLA Entertainment Group. They could have had good careers if they hadn't gotten into trouble, he said in February.

    "They are incredibly good-looking, and being identical twins, it's a novelty," Schut said then.

    In "Marc and the Twins," the brothers offer to audition for chiseled porn star Marc Williams in a seedy hotel room and are seen rubbing each other's chests.

    Keyontyli Goffney has appeared in porn since at least 2002 and worked as a fashion model, while Taleon Goffney got involved in porn more recently.
