3 more tied to NYC madam case as prostitution, money laundering arrests emerge By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A matchmaking recruiter and a suburban mother aren't the only people arrested in the investigation into allegations of a multimillion-dollar New York City brothel.

Two accused prostitutes and a man accused of being a money launderer also have quietly been charged.

The arrests happened weeks and even more than a year ago. The New York Post first reported them Friday.



Mhairiangelo Bottone (mehr-ee-AN'-jel-oh boh-TOH'-nee) and Catherine DeVries have pleaded not guilty to prostitution.

An unidentified man has pleaded not guilty to money laundering and promoting prostitution. A court transcript indicates his case is tied to accused Manhattan madam Anna Gristina, who has pleaded not guilty.

Bottone's lawyer, Carlos Carvajal (kahr-vah-HAHL'), says the interior designer is "suffering collateral damage from the larger investigation."

DeVries' lawyer declined to comment.
