N.Y. 'madam' enters plea deal
NEW YORK - A suburban mother of four charged with moonlighting as a multimillion-dollar madam pleaded guilty Tuesday to promoting prostitution.
The Scotland-born Anna Gristina made the plea in Manhattan court. The judge said she'll be sentenced Nov. 20 to time served and probation as part of a plea deal. The judge warned she could also be deported.
She spent four months in jail before being released on $250,000 bond in June.
Prosecutors had said Gristina had a roster of wealthy, well-placed clients and boasted of law-enforcement connections during 15 years in a business that made her millions. She had said she was merely starting a dating service.
