CAMDEN, N.J.(CBS/AP) Taleon Goffney, who appeared with his twin brother Keyontyli in such gay porn flicks as "Marc and the Twins," and known to police as "Spider-Man" for his daring escapes, has been sentenced to three years in prison for burglary in New Jersey.

The skin flick star received the sentence Monday after striking a plea deal with prosecutors in Camden, NJ.

Police say that Taleon Goffney, 27, scaled wires and cut holes through the roofs of Philadelphia businesses to break inside and once broke out of a police car and swam across a pond in handcuffs to avoid being caught.

During the 2006 incident, Taleon Goffney was handcuffed in the back of a moving police cruiser after a drug arrest in Clementon, N.J., when he broke the window glass with his head, escaped from the car and jumped into a lake while still handcuffed, police Chief Dave Kunkel said.

"He swam across like Flipper, taunting the officers, saying, 'You'll never catch me,"' Kunkel told the Philadelphia Daily News for a story in February.

He turned himself in a week later.

In January 2007, he jumped 30 feet from the roof of a Camden, N.J., liquor store and swam across the frigid Cooper River before he was caught, police said.

A defense lawyer, Jeffrey Zucker, said Goffney "should have signed up for the Olympics" and referred to him as Spider-Man.

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

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

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.

Taleon, who police believe is a trained gymnast and karate expert, has used his athleticism to make several daring escapes.

Taleon Goffney is serving prison time in Pennsylvania, and has resolved charges in Florida, Alabama and Delaware.

His twin brother, Keyontyli, is free after being sentenced in September to time served in New Jersey.
