Anna Gristina, 44, was in jail on the notorious Rikers Island last night after failing to come up with $3 million (£1.9 million) in bail money. A court heard she was accused of managing a prostitution racket with well-known figures and leading businessmen on her books.
Her lawyers claimed the Scottish-born mother of four had been merely attempting to create a dating website when she was arrested. She is said to have acted as a high-class madam for at least 15 years, operating from an apartment building on Manhattan\’s Upper East Side.
