The disgraced film mogul, 72, had his hands cuffed as he was pushed in a wheelchair out of a prison van and into a courthouse in Manhattan on Wednesday.

But in a shocking turn the New York Court of Appeals ruled that the movie producer did not receive a fair trial when he was convicted – effectively erasing his 23-year prison sentence and ordering a retrial.

Judge Curtis Farber remanded Weinstein in custody and set a tentative trial date for after Labor day, meaning that it could be in September.

The next court date will be May 29.
