Manhattan Madam 'pleads guilty to running high-class prostitution service from her apartment'... and now she WON'T have to name her wealthy client

The 'Manhattan Madam' has today pleaded guilty to running a high-end prostitution service from her New York City apartment. Anna Gristina, 44, pleaded guilty in Manhattan Criminal Court to a single count of promoting prostitution. The sole charge against her stemmed from a tryst she allegedly arranged between two prostitutes and an undercover police officer, who was posing as a client, in July 2011. She took the deal in exchange for a promised sentence of time already served, DNAinfo reported, meaning she won't be going back to jail as she was in Rikers Island for four months earlier this year. Gristina will be ordered to serve five months probation when she is sentenced on November 20. The judge warned the Scottish-born mother of four that she could also be deported. The punishment is much more lenient than the potential outcome of a trial; she could have faced seven years behind bars if she had been found guilty at a trial scheduled for next month.Read more
