Convicted robber ducks jail - briefly

A 19-year-old man who didn't report to jail after a jury convicted him of robbing elderly women was arrested Thursday.

Jonathan R. Crisler was convicted of felony robbery charges this week after a jury trial in Superior Court.
Judge Tari Eitzen gave him 24 hours to post a new $25,000 bond or turn himself in, but he didn't do so.

Spokane police booked him into jail Thursday night, where he'll await sentencing currently scheduled for Nov. 29.

Crisler was first arrested in March for a string of purse robberies between March 17 and March 19. In each case, an elderly woman was followed home from the grocery store and attacked.

Co-defendant Isaac J. Murphy is scheduled for trial on Nov. 28. Andrey A. Murray's trial is scheduled to begin Dec. 12.
