Fugitive brothers enter pleas in Colorado

Fugitive brothers, subject of manhunt over summer, plead guilty to Colorado charges By The Associated Press

WALSENBURG, Colo. (AP) ' Two of three fugitive siblings who were the focus of a nationwide manhunt last summer have pleaded guilty to reduced charges in Colorado.

Twenty-one-year-old Ryan Dougherty and 26-year-old Dylan Stanley-Dougherty appeared in Huerfano County district court in Walsenburg Thursday.

Dylan Dougherty pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree assault and faces up to 32 years in prison. State court administrator's office spokesman Jon Sarche says Ryan Dougherty pleaded guilty to five counts of menacing and faces up to 20 years in prison.

Their sister, 29-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, pleaded guilty last week to reduced charges. She pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and two counts of menacing, all felonies.

All had previously been charged with more serious offenses related to their capture Aug. 10 following a chase in southern Colorado. The trio was accused of shooting at a police officer in Florida, as well as robbing a Georgia bank.
