Fugitive Siblings Return to GA

ALBANY, Ga. (AP) -- Three siblings accused in a multistate crime spree have pleaded not guilty to charges of pulling off a daring bank robbery in south Georgia.

Ryan Dougherty, Lee Grace Dougherty and Dylan Stanley-Dougherty entered the plea Tuesday at a court hearing in Albany. They are accused of robbing a bank in Valdosta, Ga., hours after escaping from police in Florida. They were captured about a week later after a police chase and shootout in Colorado.

The trio received lengthy prison sentences last month in Colorado for the mayhem they caused there, and they're also expected to face criminal charges in Florida.

The three said little at Tuesday's court appearance. At the Colorado sentencing hearing Lee Dougherty apologized for her "poor judgment" and Dylan Stanley-Dougherty said he acted "out of desperation."

    Choices in life will always make you do either bad or good. God allows us to make choices it is up to us to choose wisely before we step into action. When the choice is bad, no matter how sorry we are, we have to pay the price. I am sorry to see people so young that have made choices that will cause their mama so much heartache. I pray that in prison they will find God and make it right with Him. That choice will affect your Eternity.

Yall could have gone and done random acts of helping people. Life is boring, not enough excitement going on. Well sorry to say yall may have a boring life from here on out.I've never been in the pen but I hear it's a awful place to be.
