Anthony Marshall May Never Have to Spend a Night in Jail


Anthony Marshall, the 85-year-old son of Brooke Astor, was sentenced to one to three years in prison last month for stealing money from his dying mom. Turns out, he may never have to go to jail at all. Today a judge ruled that Marshall could stay out of prison while his trial is appealed, a process that the Post says may take years. But Marshall is in such terrible health that last month his wife wasn’t sure he’d live another three days. So it sounds like he’s going to avoid jail after all. [NYP]
