CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A former Cincinnati attorney and his federal judge wife testified on Thursday before the three men who broke into the couple's Indian Hill residence last year.

Judge Susan Dlott described the night of Dec. 4 as "the most horrible, frightening experience of my life." Dlott and husband Stan Chesley awoke to three armed men surrounding their bed around 10:45 p.m.

"They were brutal, they were violent, they kept calling us motherf******, over and over again," said Dlott at the sentencing hearing inside a Hamilton County courtroom. "They told us they were going to murder us if we didn't give them everything."

The couple described the suspects ordering them around the house at gunpoint and pushing Chesley down a small flight of steps.

"My life and my wife's life will never be the same," said Chesley. "Do any of you know what it's like to have a gun to your head, and when you're pushing at your wife?  I hope they never get out of jail."

Terry Jackson Jr. and Darrell Kinney, both 21, and Demetrius Williams, 20, were each sentenced to 34 in years in prison.

The trio was pulled over for a traffic violation shortly after the home invasion. The officer noticed that the trunk of the vehicle was open and could see fur coats and other items in the trunk.
