Soccer mom madam may be freed on bail on Monday
After four months at Rikers, the so-called soccer mom madam may have reached her goal to become a free woman Monday.
Family members say they have rounded up the $250,000 bond needed to free Anna Gristina, 44, who has been in jail since her February arrest for allegedly running a $10 million prostitution ring out of an East 78th Street apartment.
A panel of judges lowered the alleged madam's $2 million bond last week to $250,000 bond or $125,000 cash. She will also be required to wear an electronic ankle bracelet.
The bond is apparently being made available with the help of her former lawyer, Peter Gleason, who has indicated his willingness to post his $2.5 million apartment as a bond on behalf of the mother of four.
Gristina has insisted she was simply providing a dating service for wealthy men that she hoped would eventually rival Match.com.
Her husband, Kelvin Gorr, has complained that her bail was set at an unrealistically high level by the court in an effort to make her surrender the names of her prominent clients.
