CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / SAN MARINO

Suspect to get his gold coins, cash

December 03, 2008|Associated Press

The man who calls himself Clark Rockefeller will get back about half of the gold coins and cash seized by authorities in Boston after he was arrested for allegedly kidnapping his 7-year-old daughter.

Prosecutors and attorneys for Rockefeller signed an agreement Monday to turn over 160 cold coins -- worth about $140,000 -- and $6,480 in cash so he can pay for his defense. Both sides said Rockefeller got the money from a divorce settlement with his ex-wife. He has pleaded not guilty to parental kidnapping.

Authorities say he is actually German citizen Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, who has been labeled a "person of interest" in the 1985 disappearance of a San Marino couple.
