Jury Selection Scheduled

Anthony "Tony" Marshall, Brooke Astor's only child, was indicted on criminal charges including grand larceny, possession of stolen property, forgery and conspiracy.

Jury selection for the criminal trial, which also involves Marshall's attorney, Francis Morrissey Jr., who faces charges including forgery and scheming to defraud, is scheduled to begin Monday.

A lawyer representing Marshall, Fred Hafetz, would say only that there would be "no plea" and that he hopes his client will "be vindicated."

No way. He will likely get a slap on the hand. But, vindicated? Nah.

This should be a big media event.

I am glad to see Brooke Astor back in the news, though. People need to be reminded of what happened to her.

And they need to know that even though they aren't wealthy like Brooke Astor, it can still happen to them.

Brooke Astor did so much for her community.

She deserves for something good to happen as a result of her suffering as a ward of the state. She deserves accountablity from those who abused her person and her finances.
