Michigan Triplets, 21, Are Now All Behind Bars On Felony Charges

As of yesterday afternoon, the 21-year-old Michigan brothers are all locked up on felony charges.
As seen in the above photos, Deshawn (left) and Juronn (center) were convicted Monday of robbery and conspiracy in connection with the July 2010 theft of money and a cell phone from a Saginaw man.
The brothers, remanded to the Saginaw County jail following the jury verdict, each face a maximum of 15 years in custody when they are sentenced next month. If sent to prison, the duo will join their brother Devon (right) as wards of the state.

Devon Shivers is locked up until at least February 2042 following his sentencing last year for home invasion, weapons possession, and assault with intent to commit murder. Devon (right) is being held at the Saginaw Correctional Facility.

The Shivers triplets turn 22 on January 10.
