Dougherty siblings to face charges in Georgia

A trio of siblings, who have already been convicted for part of an alleged multistate crime spree, are scheduled to be in a south Georgia courtroom Tuesday.

The three are accused of robbing a bank in Valdosta, Georgia, during their well-publicized 2011 cross-country flight from the law that started in Florida and ended in Colorado.

Lee Grace and Ryan Dougherty and half-brother Dylan Stanley-Dougherty were captured in Colorado after a shootout with police in August. They pleaded guilty and in April were sentenced there.

In Colorado, Stanley-Dougherty received a 32-year prison term, Lee Grace Dougherty was sentenced to 24 years and Ryan Dougherty got 18.

On Tuesday, the trio go before a judge in Georgia for charges they face in the bank robbery.
