VALDOSTA, Ga., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Three siblings convicted of robbing a Valdosta, Ga., bank in 2011, were each sentenced to more than 35 years in prison.

Ryan Dougherty, 21, Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, and their half-brother Dylan Stanley-Dougherty, 26, thanked their attorneys in federal court Monday, and apologized to those who were inside the Certus Bank during their Aug. 24, 2011 armed robbery, the Valdosta, Ga., Daily Times reported.

Each received 228 months imprisonment for robbing a bank and discharging a firearm, and 200 months for using and carrying a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence.

The robbery was part of a crime spree that included a high-speed chase and shootout with Florida police and ended in Colorado with another police chase. They were convicted and sentenced in Colorado for crimes involving the chase, WTXL-TV, Tallahassee, Fla., reported, adding charges are still pending against the trio in Florida in connection with the chase.

The Colorado sentences are expected to run concurrently with the federal sentences handed down by U.S. District Judge Hugh Lawson Monday, the newspaper said.
