DENVER (AP) ' Another of three Florida siblings captured in Colorado after an alleged multi-state crime spree has been sentenced.
Lee Grace Dougherty (DAHK'-ur-tee) was sentenced Monday to 24 years on charges stemming from their capture in Colorado. She had faced a maximum of 28 years in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree assault and two counts of menacing.
She and her two brothers are accused of shooting at a police officer and staging a daring bank robbery before being captured in Colorado after a shootout.
After they're all sentenced in Walsenburg, the siblings are expected to be transferred from state to federal custody within days, if not hours.
The U.S. Marshals Service will transport them to Albany, Ga., for a court hearing on May 15.
