As I have previously discussed, Anthony Marshall remains free on bail while he appeals his 2009 conviction.
Anthony Marshall and wife Charlene recently appeared in court to set the date for Marshall’s prison surrender. If the Court of Appeals in Albany decides not to take Marshall’s case, Marshall must surrender on June 17.
Charlene Marshall burst into tears during the court appearance, hugged her husband in his wheelchair, and told him, “You’re not going to jail, honey.” Charlene was portrayed during her husband’s 2009 trial as “the greedy muse behind the swindling.”
Anthony Marshall and his lawyer Francis Morrissey face one to three years in prison after swindling Marshall’s famous philanthropist mother Brooke Astor out of over $60 million in bequests. Marshall maintains he was merely providing for his wife if he were to predecease her.
