Clark's Oldsmobile, entered a plea of guilty to a charge of grand larceny and was given a sentence of from one to 14 years in the penitentiary by Judge Steele, of the district court, Monday morning. Kitchen vehemently denied taking the car or knowing anything about it at first. He claimed to have come to Moscow with a man named Earl White, who was enroute to Juliaetta, where Kitchen claimed White stayed all night at the hotel.
