A suburban New York mother accused of running a high-end Manhattan escort service is hoping to make her recently reduced bond with her former lawyer's apartment as collateral.

Prosecutors were given paperwork Friday outlining Anna Gristina's plan. If prosecutors and a judge OK it, she could get out of jail early next week with an ankle monitor.

The Manhattan district attorney's office hasn't responded to an inquiry.

Gristina initially was jailed on $2 million bond. An appeals court lowered it Tuesday to $250,000.

Former Gristina lawyer Peter Gleason owns the $2.5 million apartment proposed as collateral. Gristina is now represented by Connecticut-based attorney Norman Pattis.

Prosecutors say Gristina peddled prostitutes for 15 years and boasted of law enforcement contacts. She says she was just starting a dating business. She has pleaded not guilty.
