AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — Felony child sexual molestation charges against Stanley Marsh 3 have been dismissed.

The Amarillo Globe-News (http://bit.ly/1nAI88M ) reports that state District Judge John Board signed documents Tuesday that dismissed 14 felony counts that accused Marsh of paying then-teenage boys to perform sex acts at his Amarillo office.

Marsh died June 17 in Amarillo after a series of incapacitating strokes. The eccentric Texas businessman-turned-artist was responsible for the burying of 10 Cadillacs nose-down along Interstate 40 in the Panhandle.

Marsh was been indicted last year on felony counts of sexual performance by a child, sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child. Last year, he settled lawsuits by 10 teens who alleged he had paid them for sex acts. Lawsuits against Marsh by two other men are pending.
