NEW YORK (AP) - Anthony Marshall, who's serving 1 to 3 years in prison, has been classified as eligible for medical parole.

A Department of Correction spokesman tells the Daily News that Marshall will go before a parole board the week of Aug. 19.

Marshall began serving the sentence in June for defrauding his philanthropist mother, Brooke Astor, of her multimillion dollar fortune.

Marshall suffers from Parkinson's disease.

His lawyer, Kenneth Warner, says he hopes Marshall will be released on medical parole as soon as possible.

The 89-year-old Marshall is at the Fishkill Correctional Facility in Beacon.

The News says the Manhattan district attorney's office declined to comment.
