NY1 VIDEO: In 1997, shocking allegations were leveled against New York Sportscasting legend Marv Albert. He was accused of biting and sexually assaulting a woman in a Virginia hotel room: Charges that led to a high profile trial packed with highly personal and embarrasing testimony about Albert's sex life. That was until it ended abruptly on September 22, 1997. As we take a look back at 20 years of NY1, the station revisits Andrew Schmertz's report on Albert's guilty plea.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: Albert would avoid jailtime. The judge agreed to defer sentencing if he stayed out of trouble for a year and underwent psychological counseling.
