3 more tied to madam case as arrests emerge
NEW YORK -- A matchmaking recruiter and a suburban mother aren't the only people arrested in the investigation into allegations of a multimillion-dollar New York City brothel.
Two accused prostitutes and a man accused of being a money launderer also have quietly been charged.
The arrests happened weeks and even more than a year ago. The New York Post first reported them Friday.
Mhairiangelo Bottone and Catherine DeVries have pleaded not guilty to prostitution.
An unidentified man has pleaded not guilty to money laundering and promoting prostitution. A court transcript indicates his case is tied to accused Manhattan madam Anna Gristina, who has pleaded not guilty.
Bottone's lawyer, Carlos Carvajal (kahr-vah-HAHL'), says the interior designer is "suffering collateral damage from the larger investigation."
DeVries' lawyer declined to comment.
