Brothel madam goes free after guilty plea

A BRITISH mother-of-four accused of running a high-class New York brothel, was sentenced to six months in prison, but was then immediately released due to time served.

Anna Gristina (44, pictured) pleaded guilty to one count of promoting prostitution in September after being charged in February. Her plea deal meant she would not have to serve any further time in Rikers Island prison, where she was held since her charge.

When asked by a judge if she had anything to say in court yesterday, Ms Gristina said: "It's probably better that I don't." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
