Astor heir, 89, granted medical parole in NY

NEW YORK (AP) — An 89-year-old heir to one of America’s earliest megafortunes has been granted medical parole after two months in a New York prison for siphoning millions of dollars from his mentally failing mother, Brooke Astor.

A parole board announced its decision today in Anthony Marshall’s case. It interviewed him Wednesday.

State law allows medical parole for inmates with serious and permanent illnesses.

Marshall’s doctors have said he suffers from Parkinson’s disease, depends on a wheelchair and can’t do many daily tasks without help.

He began serving his one- to three-year sentence in June, after fighting his conviction for years.

Astor was a noted New York City philanthropist who inherited a fortune from her third husband. He was a descendant of one of the nation’s first multimillionaires, John Jacob Astor.
