CHAMBERBSURG, Pa. - Two brothers charged in connection with a series of armed robberies before being taken into custody in January face lengthy prison sentences after entering plea agreements Friday in Franklin County Court.
Ferdy Machado-Morales, 23, and Ferdinand Machado-Morales, 22, both of 13866 Carper Road, Mercersburg, Pa., pleaded guilty to first-degree felony robbery Friday, according to court records. Each agreed to a sentence of five to 10 years as part of the plea agreement, according to the sentencing documents.
Both could spend more time in prison having pleaded guilty to robbery charges in Fulton County, said Eric Weisbrod, the attorney for Ferdy Machado-Morales. That will depend on whether their sentences from the two counties are run end-to-end or concurrently, he said.
Court records stated their sentencing in Franklin County will be deferred until after they are sentenced in McConnellsburg, Pa., on Dec. 7.
