Anthony Marshall Headed to Prison


As I have previously discussed, Anthony Marshall remained free on bail as he appealed his 2009 conviction for forging mother Brooke Astor’s signature on a will and bilking millions from her estate. 

On June 7, the Court of Appeals in Albany denied the appeal.  Marshall and his lawyer, codefendant Francis Morrissey, must now surrender on June 17 for a one to three year prison term.  Marshall, now 88 and confined to a wheelchair, still insists he is innocent.
