Summary:

Mr. Goff was charged with 2 counts of second degree burglary of a convenience store. The State produced pre-trial evidence of video of Myron in the store doing the burglary and in-store audio of an accomplice allegedly calling his name. Mr. Goff had a long list of prior felony convictions, subjecting him to twenty or more years jail time should he be convicted on this charge.

After negotiations challenging the reliability and admissibility of the tapes, the State dropped its “second page” alleging the prior convictions so Myron accepted a plea bargain of 5 years on each count in the penitentiary. The sentences were ordered to run concurrently. Myron was out of the penitentiary in about 15 months.
