Report: Anna Gristina takes a plea deal
The “soccer mom madam” reportedly pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution this afternoon, in a deal where she will likely be sentenced to time served.
Anna Gristina accepted the plea deal today, pleading guilty to one count of promoting prostitution, according to the New York Post.
She previously said she would not take a plea deal, but later told the Post she was considering it.
“I am not going to go against my gut,” she told the newspaper.
She had faced a maximum of up to seven years if she went to trial. She previously maintained that she had no involvement with prostituting and simply worked for a matchmaking service.
Prosecutors accused her of running a prostitution ring out of an uptown apartment.
