That's My Boy!: Astor Son and His Lawyer Found Guilty of Fraud

Breaking news from the New York Daily News that Anthony Marshall, son of philanthropist Brooke Astor, was found guilty of several criminal counts relating to his alleged looting of her estate prior to her death two years ago at age 105.  Marshall's lawyer-friend, Francis Morrissey (not Marshall's lawyer in the criminal case), was also found guilty of forgery relating to some "codicils" (written amendments) to her wills.  

The jury took over twelve days to decide, and recent reports stated the jury was close to coming to blows over tensions during the deliberations.   Expect an appeal by both defendants.
