Goodman Plea Deal In Burglary
(LAS VEGAS, KXNT, A.P.)–A judge accepted a former UNLV basketball player’s guilty pleas to reduced petty theft and trespass charges and allowed him to pay restitution for expensive sneakers, cash and video games stolen from a friend’s apartment last May.
Savon Goodman didn’t appear in court Monday while his defense attorney, Bill Terry, outlined the plea deal to close Goodman’s misdemeanor conspiracy and felony burglary and grand larceny case.
Terry says the agreement requires the 20-year-old Goodman to pay $1,370 in restitution, serve 200 hours of community service and stay out of trouble for a year.
Goodman quit the Runnin’ Rebels in October, after coach Dave Rice announced in August that the 6-foot-6 sophomore forward would sit out the 2013-14 season.
Terry says Goodman has since moved home to the Philadelphia area.
