Roberts, 32, was sentenced to 10 years in the state penitentiary on a plea of guilty to u charge of forgery in Kossuth district court, last Tuesday. Roberts passed four worthless checks, with the si-gnature Of A. L. Studer on each, early this year. February 28 he and his wife skipped out of a cabin camp near Algona where they were living, one jump ahead of authorities. Roberts was arrested June 17 at Mason City and 'brought here for trial. Judge G. W. Stillman heard the plea. Driving: Stolen Car. At the time of his arrest he was driving a car stolen in Kansas City. He had two previous convictions for forgery, both times in Kansas. The 'bad checks he issued here were cashed by John Recker oi: Bancroft, the Dinette Cafe, White Front Tavern of Algona, and the Standard Oil Station, Burt. County Attorney H. W. Miller said, that Roberts confessed and preferred to 'be sentenced immediately rather than face a federal charge for theft of a car, or return to Kansas where he is on parole. Sheriff A. J.
