East Texas mother, daughter bank robbers to be sentenced


GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) -- A mother and daughter from Cleveland, Texas, are set for sentencing in a Gulfport, Miss., bank robbery.


U.S. District Judge Walter J. Gex III will sentence 58-year-old Evie Mearlene Herrin and 30-year-old Amelia Darci Crew on Monday.


They face up to 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the March 26 holdup of a Regions Bank.


The Sun Herald reports Herrin and Crew pleaded guilty Oct. 1.


A federal indictment in Louisiana alleges they also took more than $10,000 in two other bank robberies. They are accused of robbing an Iberia Bank in Kinder, La., Feb. 13 and a Mid-South Bank in Sulphur, La., March 15.


The women had been identified as suspects in a similar bank heist Feb. 29 in Henderson, Texas.
