“Grand Theft Astor:” The Sentence

Quote of the day, from Justice A. Kirke Bartley Jr., who sentenced Anthony Marshall to one to three years in prison for looting the fortune of his mother, Brooke Astor:

“It is a paradox to me that such abundance has led to such incredible sadness."

With time off for good behavior, The New York Times speculates, Marshall may be out of jail in time for Veterans Day.
