More than two years after being accused of running a New York-based call-girl ring, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney has been allowed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts under a deal that spares him any jail time. Paul Bergrin, formerly with the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Jersey, was accused of taking over the operation of a $1,000-an-hour escort service after its manager was arrested in 2005. Under the agreement, Bergrin will draw three years' probation as long as be pays $50,000 in forfeiture when sentenced.
