NEW YORK (AP) — A lawyer for Brooke Astor's 89-year-old son says his client won't have to go to prison until at least Friday.
A hearing in Anthony Marshall's case is still scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Manhattan. But in the meantime, attorney Kenneth Warner says an appeals court has agreed to postpone Marshall's possible surrender while it considers a related issue.
The district attorney's office had no immediate comment.
Marshall was convicted in 2009 of plundering his mother's fortune by exploiting her mental decline. He still denies the allegations.
The socialite and philanthropist died in 2007 at the age of 105.
