NEW YORK (AP) -- A person familiar with the matter says a matchmaking recruiter has turned herself in to face charges of helping run a high-end Manhattan prostitution ring.
The person says Jaynie Baker has surrendered and is expected to be arraigned Tuesday. She and accused madam Anna Gristina were indicted weeks ago on a promoting-prostitution charge. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss developments not made public before the court appearance.
Gristina was arrested last month and has pleaded not guilty. But Baker had been at large.
Baker was listed until recently as a recruiter for high-end matchmaking service VIP Life. Founder Lisa Clampitt says Baker was a freelancer who never ended up referring a client or getting paid during the six months she was associated with the service.
