Stanley Marsh 3 is a strange fellow with a strange backstory. He’s also somewhat famous. Texans know him because he’s an eccentric artist who buried a number of vintage Cadillac cars in the sand. Fans of strange naming conventions know him because he uses the number “3” in his name (because it’s less formal than “III”). Indie rock fans know him because Marsh is the millionaire who took Christopher Owens of Girls under his wing in the years after Owens left the cultlike Children of God religion. But Marsh’s story is getting far stranger than any of the tales already told about him. The oil tycoon was booked in an Amarillo, Texas jail yesterday on allegations that he sexually abused a number of boys who were under the age of 17 at the time. Marsh, whose wife has acted as his caregiver since he suffered a number of strokes last year, faces 11 sex crime-related counts, and paid a $325,000 bond for his release. “The criminal charges against Stanley Marsh 3 are mere allegations by the group of accusers who have filed a barrage of civil lawsuits against Marsh seeking millions of dollars,” his lawyers said in a statement.
