Anthony Marshall to Be Paroled


The 89-year-old son of Brooke Astor will soon be out of prison after becoming eligible for medical parole.

Marshall recently received a one to three years sentence for his role in stealing millions of dollars from his philanthropic mother.  However, he will only serve about 60 days of his sentence due to medical parole, meaning Marshall is so debilitated that there’s a reasonable probability he no longer presents a danger to society.

Marshall’s health issues include Parkinson’s disease and congestive heart failure.  His lawyers claim “he could not walk, stand, clean himself or dress himself and had potentially life-threatening swallowing issues.”
