RICHMOND, Texas (AP) — Two siblings who pleaded guilty to helping their father rob a Houston-area bank last year have received prison sentences.

A Fort Bend County judge sentenced 21-year-old Hayden Scott Catt to 10 years in prison on Thursday in Richmond, while 19-year-old Abigail Catt got a five-year prison term. Both pleaded guilty to participating in the October 2012 holdup of a credit union in the suburban Houston community of Cinco Ranch.

Their father, Ronald Scott Catt, is scheduled for trial Dec. 5. If convicted of aggravated robbery, he could be sentenced to five to 99 years in prison.

Prosecutors say the father is suspected of five bank holdups by himself before recruiting his son.
