Assistant District At lorney Norman Elkington said he intends lo 'prosecute Grisbell for perjury. Grissell .said he sinned Ihe affidavit "without, reading it." "I felt uncomfortable on that, jury." he added. "I was figuring on how to gel out, without raising a fuss." Police said Grissell was sentenced lo San Qucnliii prison in 1021 for a Long Beach forgery: in 1024 he served three years in Folsom for a forgery: a Sacramento forgery In 1928 netted him five years iti Fol.som: an Austin, Nev., forgery in 1935. resulted in his serving two years in Nevada state prison: nnd in 193B lie started serving a three< \car term in McNeil Island federal penitentiary for forgery. It was while he was serving time for the Sacramento forgery in the first six months of 1U3H thai Cline also was a prisoner in Folsom for drugging and robbing a Los Angeles businessman. Grisseil said, however, that he did not know Cline in prison. Since his last imprisonment. Grissell said he has been "going straight." He married two years a,-,o and has been employed for the past year and a half as a painter-decorator. His record came to light when police made a routine check of the jury. Judge Kaufman denied a defense motion to lele.scope eight of ninu forgery counts against Cline into one. Tile defense contended that Cline. in alleging the loss of a stock certificate belonging to his wife. Mrs/Eva Dolora Krebs Cline. signed an 'affidafTt *in (ufa'druplicale and acknowledged indemnification in quadruplicate. Kaufman held that every time an alleged forger takes his pen in hand arid writes a name, separate crimes are committed. The other forgery count accuses Cline of forging a deed to four Richmond. Calif., lots belonging to Mrs. Elizabeth Hunt Lewis, one of ^fc\he eight or more women in Chile's ^ife who died mysteriously.
