A 36-year-old former member of a motorcycle gang testified Wednesday that he was so frightened after watching Thomas F. Maniscalco and a small band of killers leave three people dead in a Westminster home in 1980 that he hid for a year for fear he would be next.

Orange County jail inmate Thomas F. Maniscalco was released from a medical observation cell and returned to the main jail, said his attorney, Joanne Harrold. Maniscalco complained that he had been sent to the medical cell--which he compared to solitary confinement--in retaliation for his talking with a Times reporter about prisoners' request that they be served more Mexican food. He said doctors told him they needed to monitor his diet before testing him for a persistent gall bladder problem.

Maniscalco, a lawyer himself and a longtime friend of Harrold's, told The Times that he wants her to remain his attorney. The stay order came at 5:05 p.m.

The Orange County district attorney's office has reluctantly agreed to step aside in the prosecution of former West Municipal Judge Joanne Harrold. County prosecutors apparently don't want to risk the chance that the Harrold case would interfere with their case against Thomas F. Maniscalco. Maniscalco is accused of masterminding a triple murder in Westminster. Harrold is his trial attorney, and the district attorney's office had been prosecuting them both.

It's been five years since Joanne Harrold was removed from the bench in West Orange County Municipal Court after a judge invalidated her election victory, saying she had lied about being a county resident. But the issue is far from dead. On Thursday, Harrold, 43, faces a preliminary hearing on criminal charges related to her 1982 residency claims. She is charged with a felony count of filing a false declaration of candidacy by claiming to be an Orange County resident.
