Copperfield thieves go downtown

One of the three brilliant teenagers charged with attempting to rob David Copperfield back in April- has pleaded guilty.

Terrance Riley, 17, was sentenced to two years in prison for three counts of robbery with a weapon and one count of attempted robbery.

The judge also ordered Riley to testify against his two co-defendants, his brother Dwayne Riley, 18, and Markeith Jones, 17.

Copperfield and two female assistants were walking to their tour bus when they were approached by the teens. The assistants handed over money and a cellphone, but Copperfield turned his pockets inside out to reveal nothing- although he was carrying his passport, wallet and cell phone.

"He said in depositions that he had things on him, but it wasn't difficult to make it seem like there was nothing there," prosecutor Sherri Collins said.
