Anna Gristina, alleged "Manhattan Madam," sentenced to time served in prostitution case
Gristina got six months in jail Tuesday and five years of probation. Her lawyers said Gristina lived on a 12-acre property in Monroe, about 50 miles north of New York City, and rescued animals and helped abandoned pet pigs find new homes.
But prosecutors accused the 45-year-old Gristina of having a roster of wealthy, well-placed clients and boasting of law-enforcement connections during 15 years in a business that made her millions.
She had said she was merely starting a dating service.
Prosecutors said they had to investigate her claims, but found no evidence to show she was as well connected as she had boasted.
