The accused madam of a multimillion-dollar Manhattan brothel could get out of jail if a judge OKs a defense lawyer's plan to put up his own apartment as bail and a house-arrest locale for her.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys have presented contrasting views of a New York woman jailed on a seven-figure bail on a single charge of promoting prostitution.
Dozens of students battled one another at a high school Wednesday in a racially motivated brawl between black and Hispanic students that left two injured and three under arrest, authorities said.
One of her lawyers, Peter J. Gleason, told a judge earlier this week that she's broke and he would put up his $2.5 million downtown Manhattan loft for the bond.
He said the accusation that she promoted sex with children was "a ploy" that police sometimes use "if they have a hostile client that they want to break."
