Why would the following code not take out the carriage returns and line feeds?
descptn = rs.getString("descrip").replaceAll("\r\n"," ").trim();

Are you not asking it to replace only where there is a carriage return followed by a line break (plus I think you will need to escape the regex escape character)?
This does it I think:
