He also worked as a Bailiff for the County Marshal of Los Angeles, California. He rose through the ranks and eventually was appointed the County Marshal in 1971. However, in 1975 he was fired after his conviction on felony charges for "illegal use of deputy marshals in political activities".
His later years were spent in business, such as operating a lumber mill in South Dakota and rental properties in Los Angeles, California.
