The Canadian Royal Navy decided not to press charges against Demara, and he was returned the United States.
Back in the U.S., Demara continued to take on false identities, though none as high profile as that of Joseph Cyr. In 1955 he was Dr. Benjamin Jones, and worked in a Texas prison.
In 1957, Demara was arrested in North Haven, Maine. When a prisoner recognized Demara from a LIFE magazine article, he moved to the Penobscot Bay island, where he assumed the identity of Martin Godgart, a high school teacher—until that lie, too, was uncovered. Demara spent six months in prison for his exploits as Martin Godgart.
