The Walker County Messenger is reporting that Ken Poston, attorney for convicted creamatory operator Brent Marsh, is saying that Marsh is not eligible for parole. Poston said that it is a common misconception that a prisoner is automatically eligible for parole and that it is simply not the case in Georgia.
Marsh is serving time for not creamating bodies that were sent to his family’s creamatory by funeral homes all over the Tri-State Area. Poston said that he thinks Marsh should be paroled so that Marsh can begin to pay back money to Walker County that he owes for the cleanup of the creamatory site in the Noble community. Marsh faces prison time in Tennessee after he is released from Georgia prison. Marsh is serving a 12 year sentence.
