Marshall and Morrissey Sentenced to One to Three Years

MarshallAnthony Marshall and Francis Morrissey were sentenced to one to three years in prison for defrauding Brooke Astor of millions of dollars.  This was the minimum sentence possible.

When asked if he had anything to say at the sentencing, Marshall stated, "I have nothing to add to what my attorneys have said." 

Marshall will be allowed to stay out of prison on bail during any possible appeals to the conviction.  Due to Marshall's age, 85, a lengthy appeals process could save Marshall from actually serving the prison sentence imposed.
