VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) -- The Dougherty siblings have been sentenced in federal court in south Georgia for a multi-state crime spree that included a bank robbery.

Ryan Dougherty, Lee Grace Dougherty, and Dylan Stanley-Dougherty were each sentenced to 35 year in prison without parole. The siblings-trio were charged with the 2011 robbery of Certus Bank in Valdosta.

The robbery was part of a crime-spree that began with a high speed chase and shootout with police in Florida and ended with another chase with law enforcement in Colorado. The trio has already been sentenced in Colorado for numerous crimes.

There are charges pending in Florida still against the siblings in connection with the high speed chase.
