Accused NY madam's attorney: Black book irrelevant
Attorney of accused NYC madam: Black book doesn't exist, is irrelevant to case
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The attorney for a mother of four who is accused of operating a high-class Manhattan brothel says he never asked her about a so-called black book.

Peter J. Gleason told "Good Day New York" on Wednesday that "as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't exist."

He says if Anna Gristina is found guilty of the charges, "it's irrelevant to me if there's a black book or note."

He says the prosecution has not shared with the defense team information about its allegations that the Monroe, N.Y., woman peddled underage girls and had police protection.

He says the allegation she promoted sex with children was "a ploy" the police sometimes use "if they have a hostile client that they want to break."

Gristina has pleaded not guilty.
