    A new development in the case of the accused millionaire madam of the Upper East Side: She will be back in court next week, months earlier than expected. People in the neighborhood talked about the new revelations in the case. Andrew Siff has the story. (Published Thursday, Mar 8, 2012)

    Her lawyer was given documents, including information prosecutors submitted to persuade a judge to sign off on wiretapping in the case. Those documents are not public. It's not uncommon for prosecutors to turn them over at this stage in a case.

    Baker's lawyer, Robert Gottlieb, says he'll decide on his next step after reviewing the information. She's due back in court April 20.

    Baker and alleged madam Anna Gristina are charged with promoting prostitution. They've pleaded not guilty.

    Gottlieb says the charges have subjected the 30-year-old Baker to a swarm of unwanted attention.
