Local Man Wanted by Army Sentenced to Federal Prison

A local man who has been wanted by the Army since the early ‘80’s was sentenced Tuesday.

57-year old Daryl Grigsby, who most recently lived in Dyersville, was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison.

Grigsby was convicted of aggravated assault while serving in the Army in the 1980’s. While additional criminal charges were pending, he ran from the Army. He was later convicted of bank robbery in federal court in Oregon in the 1990’s while using the name “Aaron Davis”. In 2001, Grigsby absconded from federal supervised release. At some point after his bank robbery conviction, Grigsby began using the identity and Social Security Number of another person. He continued using that identity until he was arrested in Iowa last year.

Grigsby had pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated identity theft and one count of misuse of a Social Security Number last September.

Along with his sentence of forty months in federal prison, Grigsby was ordered to pay over 65-thousand dollars in restitution.

He is being held in U.S. Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
