Barbie Bandits Are Sentenced

April 1, 2008


Heather Johnston and Ashley Miller (aka The Barbie Bandits) have been sentenced. The two girlfriends / exotic dancers from Georgia made headlines last year after they robbed $11,000 from a Bank of America branch in a suburban supermarket. The girls were taped robbing in style, wearing sunglasses, giggling and looking hot. After the "heist" the girls spent the loot shopping and getting their hair done. (Apparently that's the Barbie hold-up method).

The giggles and sunglasses where absent in court on Monday. Instead, a remorseful Heather (on the left) broke down:

A lot of people look down on me. I feel terrible. I want to set a good example for my little sister. She's a great kid. I don't want her to end up like me.

According to CNN:

Ashley Miller was sentenced to the maximum of 10 years. She has to serve two years behind bars, with the remainder on probation. Heather Johnston was sentenced to 10 years probation.

I wonder if there is a Barbie Goes to Jail doll? Now that would be hot.
