ATLANTA (AP) - A federal appeals court has ordered a judge to resentence two of three Florida siblings for their roles in the robbery of a south Georgia bank during a cross-country crime spree.

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday cleared the sentences of Lee Grace Dougherty and Dylan Dougherty Stanley based on a procedural error by the lower court. But the panel upheld the sentence of Ryan Dougherty because his appeal did not challenge his sentence on procedural grounds.

The three pleaded guilty after reaching agreements with prosecutors. A federal judge in December 2012 sentenced all three siblings to serve 35 years and 8 months, well above sentencing guidelines.

The three have pleaded guilty to charges in Colorado and still face charges in Florida.
