(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - Anna Gristina, the suburban mother suspected of running a high-priced Manhattan brothel is due back in court today because a judge wants to determine whether she should continue to get a court-paid defense. Gristina has pleaded not guilty to promoting prostitution.

The judge in the case wants to scrutinize her finances and clarify the role of Peter Gleason, one of Gristina's lawyers who last week spoke to the media about the case but had not yet filed paperwork to sign on officially as her attorney.

Meanwhile, the New York Daily News reports that Gristina's alleged booker, Jaynie Mae Baker, 30, who faces one count of promoting prostitution, may turn herself in Monday or Tuesday.

According to the Daily News, authorities indicted Baker last month but have been unable to locate her.
