NEW YORK (AP) — A lawyer says a police officer he is representing is bewildered that he's been linked to an investigation of an accused multimillion-dollar madam.
Attorney Andrew Quinn says Sgt. Richard Wall "has no involvement" with accused madam Anna Gristina.
Prosecutors say during a five-year investigation Gristina was heard saying she'd made millions of dollars over about 15 years running a Manhattan prostitution ring and claimed to have law enforcement connections.
Gristina has pleaded not guilty to promoting prostitution and remained jailed on $2 million bond Wednesday.
Wall has been ordered to give internal-affairs investigators his work log for the past five years. Quinn says as far as he knows, Wall is not under any criminal or administrative investigation.
