Dougherty Three Scheduled to Plea

WALSENBURG, Colo. (AP) _ One of the three Dougherty (DAHK’-ur-tee) siblings accused in a multi-state crime spree is scheduled to enter a plea deal in court.

Colorado court officials say a deal has been reached between prosecutors and 29-year-old Lee Grace Dougherty, who is scheduled to be in court Thursday morning.

Prosecutors and her attorney aren’t commenting, citing a judge imposed gag order.

Prosecutors last week dropped attempted-murder charges against Lee Grace and instead charged her with eight felony first-degree assault and menacing charges.

Each charge corresponds to an officer involved in a high-speed chase Aug. 10 in southern Colorado.

The Dougherty siblings, Lee Grace, 26-year-old Dylan Stanley, and 21-year-old Ryan, are accused of shooting at a police officer in Florida, as well as robbing a Georgia bank.
