"Clark Rockefeller" Convicted
We had managed to avoid the subject, but the verdict is in on that "Crockefeller" case. Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, who had portrayed himself successfully as a member of the Rockefeller family until he last summer unwisely snatched his daughter, of whom custody has been granted to his ex-wife, has been found guilty of kidnapping the girl and on one count of assaulting a social worker. He was acquitted on a separate assault charge and of giving a false name to police. His insanity plea apparently failed to sway jurors. Now everyone can go back to paying attention to the Amanda "Foxy Knoxy" Knox trial.
