Man may serve abuse sentence in Pa.

June 13, 1993|By Staff report

An Anne Arundel County Circuit judge will allow a 52-year-ol man convicted of sexually abusing his daughter and former sister-in-law in Glen Burnie to serve his one-year sentence in a jail near his Pennsylvania home so that he can work while he

serves his time.

Judge Raymond G. Thieme Jr. said Norman S. Marriott Jr. of Mount Pleasant Mills, Pa., may serve his year in the Snyder

County, Pa., jail if his attorney can arrange it.

Judge Thieme also agreed to let Marriott begin the sentence June 28, giving his attorney time to make the arrangements.

Allen N. Horvitz, Marriott's attorney, requested the transfer Friday so that his client could continue to work as a forklift operator to support his ailing second wife and pay for the therapy of his daughter and former sister-in-law.

Marriott was sentenced May 25 to one year in prison and to serve a second year under house arrest after he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a daughter and his former wife's younger sister during visits to his parents' home about 18 years ago.

His brother, Edward R. Marriott III, 50, of Big Fork, Mont., who also had pleaded guilty to sexual child abuse charges, killed himself the day after Norman was sentenced and the day he was to be sentenced.
