Jaynie Mae Baker
A judge has refused to dismiss the case against Anna Gristina, the suburban mom accused of earning millions of dollars by selling sex to wealthy clients.
Published reports said she’ll plead guilty to a misdemeanor and avoid a lengthy jail sentence for promoting prostitution. It’s unclear if the deal would mean that Baker will have to testify against Gristina, who has refused to enter into a plea agreement with the District Attorney’s office.
Lawyer Robert Gottlieb filed court papers Tuesday in the case against Jaynie Mae Baker, who was charged with promoting prostitution. Prosecutors say she worked with Anna Gristina.
Vinnie Parco, private eye to accused madam Anna Gristina, spent about ten minutes in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office on Friday.
Prosecutors now have three people cooperating in the case against accused Upper East Side madam Anna Gristina.
The accused multimillion dollar madam was back in her isolation cell at Rikers Island on Thursday night following a setback in court earlier in the day.
The attorney for 30-year-old Jaynie Mae Baker said she is not what she’s been portrayed as. Robert Gottlieb said she’s more interested in the penniless and the powerless.
Anna Gristina is facing just a single charge of promoting prostitution, but she’s being held on $2 million bail. On Monday, her lawyer offered more than legal advice. He offered his own ritzy home to secure her release.
More is being learned about the accused East Side madam, and how she ran her alleged brothel. A former madam says accused Anna Gristina had a reputation for offering a rotating cast of beautiful young women — from the UK and Europe.
