MONROE - Two suspected call girls and an accused money launderer allegedly connected to the Monroe woman charged with running a prostitution ring have reportedly been arrested.

The accused madam, Anna Gristina, was in court yesterday for a bail hearing. Her former attorney offered up his New York City loft to cover her $2 million bond, but the judge put off his decision on the matter.

Gristina's new defense lawyer, Gary Greenwald, says the bail amount is unfair and not proportionate to the charges.

Greenwald adds that he would like to meet with prosecutors to discuss a possible plea deal.
