Accused NYC madam makes legal switch -- her 3rd

The accused suburban-mom madam of a multimillion-dollar Manhattan escort service has moved on to a new legal team -- her fourth.

A judge agreed Tuesday to let Anna Gristina make her third legal switch. She's now represented by seasoned Connecticut civil rights and criminal defense lawyer Norman Pattis.

The Manhattan district attorney's office says Gristina peddled prostitutes for 15 years and bragged that she had law-enforcement contacts. Gristina's lawyers have said she was merely starting a matchmaking business.

She's pleaded not guilty to promoting prostitution.

Altogether, nine lawyers have appeared on her case at various times. One former Gristina attorney, Peter Gleason, offered to put up his apartment for her $2 million bail.

The judge urged other arrangements. Gristina has yet to raise bail.
