Anthony Marshall, who is 89 and depends on a wheelchair, is scheduled to go before a parole board the week of Aug. 19. Marshall surrendered on June 21 to begin serving a one- to three-year prison sentence.
Friday was the last day of freedom for the 89-year-old son of late philanthropist Brooke Astor. Anthony Marshall was ordered by a judge to begin serving a long-awaited prison term.
Judge A. Kirke Bartley denied Anthony Marshall’s motion for a new trial and ordered that the 89-year-old appear before him on Friday afternoon to surrender and begin serving his time.
Anthony Marshall had been due to surrender Monday to serve one to three years. He was convicted of looting money from his mother, socialite and philanthropist Brooke Astor, as her mind failed.
The 88-year-old heir to an American fortune remains free on bail in New York while he pursues a further appeal of his conviction on charges of plundering his mother’s millions.
Anthony Marshall was convicted in 2009 for trying to steal $60 million from his mother. The long appeals process gave Marshall four years of freedom following his conviction for grand larceny.
In keeping with Astor’s wishes and life’s motto that “money is like manure; it should be spread around,” all the proceeds from the sale will go to the institutions and causes she supported.
