Judge Ends Probation in Brothel Case as Ex-Prosecutor Awaits Trial for Murder

A New York judge cut former prosecutor Paul Bergrin a break today on his sentence for operating a Manhattan brothel, ending the defense lawyer’s probation in the misdemeanor case and sentencing him to time served.

But that’s because the 53-year-old Bergrin, who is accused of arranging to have a witness murdered in New Jersey, remains in jail without bail on federal charges in that case, reports the Star-Ledger.

Bergrin said nothing in court today. He has pleaded not guilty in federal court in Newark to murder, conspiracy and racketeering charges.
