  10. Suit: Marin deputy DA scammed dying man out of Plumas cabinRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday | Marin Independent Journal

    A Marin County deputy district attorney has been accused in a lawsuit of conning a dying man into signing over the deed to the mountain cabin where he lived all his life. The defendant, Robert Ashley, 30, who has worked in the Marin D.A.'s office since May, said “the allegations are entirely false, and I think that will be very successful in the courts.” The suit against Ashley and his mother, Marilyn, is being brought by Nate Accomazzo, a San Anselmo electrician who is the nephew of Stacey Accomazzo, who owned the cabin free and clear before he died of cancer in May at age 69. The Ashleys were his next door neighbors in a rustic part of Plumas County 90 miles northwest of Lake Tahoe.
