Briscoe, who worked as an auto mechanic, was also suspected of being "The Inspector", an arsonist who set several fires, including Judge Nat U. Hill's barn on Kinser Pike. He was also known for his involvement in a United States Supreme Court case, where he argued that he should be allowed to sue trial witnesses for libel after their statements.
Briscoe's daughter also served prison time, for the shooting death of Don Briscoe, Carlisle Briscoe's brother, in 1984.
Carlisle Briscoe died in the Nebraska State Penitentiary, where he had been sent for possession of a firearm.
