More information is surfacing about accused bank robber Lee Grace Dougherty, 29.  The Orlando exotic dancer and her siblings are charged with robbing a Georgia bank then fleeing to Colorado where they ended up in a shootout with police officers. 

Dougherty was asked to pose naked at poker games over a period of weeks leading up to the robbery.

She professed on her Flickr feed:  "I am a Floridian. Born and raised in Seminole County. I have a huge crazy family. I'm 28 but act like I'm 17 most of the time. I love to farm and shoot guys and wreck cars. I'm a redneck and proud of it. I like milk and German engineering and causing mayhem with my siblings.")

The gang went on a rampage of terror after the August sentencing of brother Ryan Dougherty, a registered sex offender accused of sending 400 sexually explicit text messages to an 11-year-old girl he met online. 

The gang was eventually confronted in Colorado and engaged in a wild gun battle whereby Lee Grace was shot in the leg.  The suspects were all taken into custody. 

Lee Grace Dougherty previously faced five felonies and six misdemeanors, in connection with a May hit-and-run as well as a possible probation violation and alleged aggravated battery.  Dylan Dougherty, 26, faced a possession of marijuana charge prior to the robberies. 

The trio is being dubbed “The Dougherty Gang” and “Bonnie & Clyde & Clyde”.
