A Manhattan judge has ordered a Thursday start date for the prison sentence of Anthony Marshall, who was convicted of stealing from the estate of his late mother, socialite Brooke Astor.

Marshall, seen above, was set to begin serving a one- to three-year prison term on Monday, but several motions were brought before the judge.

The judge denied a retrial of Marshall's case based on new evidence, after lawyers filed papers claiming a juror was strong-armed into finding Marshall guilty.

Also, the judge denied a motion that Marshall did not have to go to prison due to poor health.

Marshall was convicted of exploiting his mother's dementia to steal millions from her famous fortune.

Astor died in 2007.
