Dougherty brothers back in court
Tue, 31 Jan 2012 06:25:00 GMT —
Two brothers accused in a multistate crime spree are due back in court on Monday.
Ryan Dougherty and Dylan Stanley-Dougherty face five counts each in Colorado including attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault and other felony charges related to a high speed chase and what authorities call a shootout before their capture Aug. 10.
The duo is accused of shooting at a police officer in Florida and a Valdosta bank robbery. Dylan Stanley-Dougherty is also accused of planning an escape from the southern Colorado jail where he was brought after his capture.
Colorado, federal and Florida prosecutors are discussing a plea deal to decide what each wants to do in the case. Their sister, Lee Grace Dougherty, has pleaded not guilty to the Colorado charges.
