    AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A Texas grand jury has indicted eccentric millionaire artist Stanley Marsh 3 on charges that he sexually assaulted six teenagers, according to documents released Thursday.

    Marsh was indicted Wednesday on four counts of sexual assault of a child, eight counts of sexual performance by a child, and two counts of indecency with a child. His attorneys have denied the allegations.

    If convicted, Marsh, the son of an oil tycoon, faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000 on each count. ................

    Marsh, who is probably best known for sponsoring the pop art landmark "Cadillac Ranch" in the early 1970s, settled civil lawsuits in February involving 10 teenagers who alleged he paid them for sex............

    This is not the first time Marsh has been accused of sexual misconduct. In 2001, four lawsuits against Marsh that alleged imprisonment, sexual misconduct and harassment of teens were settled. No other details were made public..............more.....

    Other cases in 1998 and 1996. Does not give his age but I guess he looks older since a stroke in 2011.

    ...........In the latest case, Lubbock County District Attorney Matt Powell was appointed special prosecutor after the district attorney for Potter County recused himself. Powell has said the settlement in the civil cases won't affect the criminal prosecution.

    The civil suits alleged Marsh gave teenage boys cash, alcohol, drugs and in one case, two BMWs, to perform sex acts with him during secret encounters at his office. In one of the civil cases, a teenager claimed he had more than 100 sexual encounters with Marsh in his office and Toad Hall home in Amarillo.

    Amarillo police say that they found evidence in Marsh's downtown offices that corroborated "the accounts of sexual exploitation of minors." Police seized computers, couch cushion covers, a photo of a nude male and signed confidentiality agreements, among other things, according to a search warrant inventory report.
