Two of the three siblings accused of a cross country crime spree--involving a high-speed chase in Florida, a bank robbery in Georgia and finally ended with a shootout in Colorado--have pleaded guilty in Georgia.

Ryan Dougherty and Lee Grace Dougherty, along with brother Dylan Stanley-Dougherty, originally pleaded not guilty to bank robbery and firearm charges in May.

The three already pleaded guilty in Colorado to charges related to their capture. Ryan received 18 years, Lee Grace received 24, and Dylan, called the "trigger man" by the prosecution, was sentenced to 32 years for firing an AK-47 out of a car window at pursuing officers.

The siblings still face charges in Florida, where prosecutors say they shot an officer during the high-speed chase they are accused in.
