Philly Reporter's Husband to be Tried for Sexual Assault

WPVI Reporter Annie McCormick's husband is making news in Philadelphia, but we doubt the Reporter is happy about it. 

McCormick's husband is Andrew Marsico, a noted Philadelphia Republican lobbyist and he has been ordered to stand trial on sexual assault charges in a September incident involving a 27-year-old woman.

Marsico was held for court on seven counts including aggravated indecent assault without consent, unlawful restraint, and false imprisonment. A count of reckless endangerment was dismissed by Municipal Court Judge Roger F. Gordon at the end of the preliminary hearing.

Defense attorney Fortunato N. Perri Jr. said Marsico "continues to maintain his innocence and plans to clear his good name at trial."

Assistant District Attorney Kristen Kemp said the alleged victim was the only witness to testify at the hearing.

The woman told police that she met Marsico, 40, at an event at the Union League and that afterward they went to Marsico's office at Greenlee Partners at the nearby Bellevue hotel.

The woman said the alleged assault took place in Marsico's office about 10 p.m.
