NEW YORK—The family of a woman accused of moonlighting for 15 years as a multimillion-dollar Manhattan madam has launched a website to help pay her $2 million bail.

Anna Gristina's family says it cannot afford to pay what they call her "cruel and unusual" bail.

The site says they need donations to help "bring her back to us."

It features family photos and information on her pot-bellied pig rescue farm.

The site claims Gristina is being kept in solitary confinement. It says authorities also attempted to humiliate her by making "her wear only a T-shirt and diaper."

The corrections department tells the Daily News there's no truth to those claims.

She's been held since her February arrest. Gristina's lawyers say she was trying to start a dating service.
