A person familiar with the case of a matchmaking recruiter charged with helping run a multimillion-dollar New York City escort service says she has made a deal with prosecutors.

The person told The Associated Press on Tuesday former matchmaking recruiter Jaynie Baker had reached an agreement to resolve her promoting-prostitution case. The details are unclear.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to discuss the agreement before it's aired in court. Records show a court date for Baker this week has been postponed to October.

The Manhattan district attorney's office has declined to comment. So has Baker's lawyer, Robert Gottlieb.

The New York Post first reported the development.

Prosecutors say Baker helped Anna Gristina run a high-priced escort service. Both pleaded not guilty earlier this year. Gristina has said she was simply starting a dating business.
