A high-end madam who boasted she used cops as security and made millions by peddling flesh — including underage girls — to rich and powerful clients has been busted after a five-year probe, prosecutors said. The Manhattan district attorney’s office indicted petite, blond, green-eyed Anna Gristina, 44, in a corruption investigation that amassed 50 to 100 hours of audio and video recordings, some showing prostitutes doing the deed, according to court records. “We have had at least one eyewitness account of someone that has been obviously present for a sexual encounter arranged by (Gristina) for one of her clients in which minors were involved in the encounter,” Assistant District Attorney Charles Linehan said at her Feb. 23 arraignment. Prosecutors said they caught Gristina, a suburban mom with four children, boasting that she had collaborators in law enforcement who were willing to tip her off if investigators were closing in on her. She was recorded bragging that contacts were “poised to help her out, to let her know if there is trouble on the front that she needs to be concerned about, particularly back during the Eliot Spitzer investigation,” Linehan said.
Gristina, also known as Anna Scotland, apparently made a fortune from her prostitution ring and amassed a slew of high-powered contacts. “(Gristina) has business contacts worldwide as she has admitted in tape recordings that we have. (She is) a woman who … claimed to have made millions over the 15 or so years she has been in business as a madam,” Linehan said. The accused madam was born in Scotland and owns property in Canada. She is at Rikers Island on $2 million bond after prosecutors convinced a judge that her global contacts would allow her to fleethe country at the first opportunity. Gristina, who lives in Monroe, Orange County, and has a British passport, was overheard by investigators promising to skip town if she got a hint of trouble.In case some of youse were wondering what some of “Anna’s” services would cost you, here is the break-down.
