Ashley Miller, who was convicted of theft and drug distribution charges, was sentenced to the maximum of 10 years, but only has to serve two years in prison. She also must pay $2,500 in restitution. Miller had marijuana and a large quantity of ecstasy pills on her when she was arrested.
Heather Lyn Johnston, who plead guilty to robbery and drug charges last August, was sentenced to 10 years probation with community service. She will also have to pay a $2,000 fine and pay $2,500 in restitution.
Benny Herman Allen III, the bank teller who came up with the plan to rob the bank branch where he worked, was also sentenced to 10 years but will serve only five years in prison and pay $2,500 in restitution.
The media dubbed the two then 19-year-old robbers the "Barbie Bandits" after a bank videotape of the robbery showed the two blondes wearing designer sunglasses and giggling during the hold-up.
The two were arrested March 2, 2007 in a vehicle driven by convicted felon Michael Darrell Chastang. Police found marijuana in the car and ecstasy pills on Miller. Investigators said Miller and Johnston, who were working in a strip club at the time, planned to split the money with Chastang and Allen.
Chastang will be sentenced later.
