Pueblo County DA Won't Press Charges Against 'Dougherty Gang'

The three Dougherty siblings will not face charges in Pueblo County, the District Attorney said in court Monday. The so-called “Dougherty Gang” will instead face the charges in Huerfano County.

Ryan, Dylan and Lee Grace Dougherty didn’t appear in court Monday, due to the minor nature of the proceeding and security concerns.

The trio is currently being held in Pueblo County's jail on charges including assault on a peace officer and attempted murder. They're scheduled for a preliminary hearing September 20 in Huerfano County. Prosecutors will then lay out the evidence they have against them.

Charges were originally filed against the siblings in both counties because they were caught near Walsenburg after a high-speed chase that began in Pueblo County.
