Two brothers will spend the next 30 years in prison for the terrifying home invasion and rape of a mother and her 14-year-old daughter.

Reggie and Deondre Bishop, 32 and 31 respectively, were two of the three men who broke into a home in Bryant Ave N, Minneapolis, at 11 p.m. on July 19, 2015, armed with guns and wearing white masks, according to a news release from Hennepin County Attorney's Office on Tuesday.

They then pulled the 14-year-old girl upstairs and shouted at her mother for money. After searching for it, they proceeded to rape the mother and her daughter, before leaving with televisions, a laptop and cellphones.

Speaking to the court on Monday, the mother gave an impact statement, in which she noted that Reggie Bishop had "laughed and joked" his way through the court case.

The Hennepin County Attorney's Office told BringMeTheNews that Bishop also didn't take the sentencing seriously, to the extent that District Judge Jay Quam had to ask him if he was paying attention.

"He'll have [at least] 7,300 days to laugh his way through prison," Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced in a press statement. "He’ll have to explain to his children why he’s in prison."

According to the criminal complaint, the mother and daughter were tied up with pillow cases placed over their heads, and threatened with torture if they didn't say "where the money was."

They were then brought upstairs where they were sexually assaulted, with the mother able to see her daughter being assaulted, at one point with a gun being pointed at her head.

During the impact statement, the victim said it took her daughter "several months" before she could describe what she went through.

"How does a grown man torture and rape a 14-year-old girl?" she asked the court. "How do you say ‘Now you know what the bad guys look like…’ Twenty years is not long enough. Every single day, I hope he hates himself."

The Bishops joined 32-year-old Roynell Taylor in being sentenced to 30 years in prison for the crime.

They were each convicted of two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of first-degree burglary.
