mariah & alison carey (young)

*Mariah Carey‘s older and troubled sister, Alison Carey,  pleaded not guilty to prostitution charges Wednesday in upstate Saugerties, according to the Daily Freeman in Saugerties, NY.

The report says Alison Carey, 55, was released from the Ulster County Jail after making her $1,000 bail, the Daily Freeman reported.

Neither Carey nor her lawyer, Thomas Melanson, spoke to reporters before or after the short proceeding. Carey was arrested Friday at a Howard Johnson hotel after an undercover cop posing as a customer responded to an ad the R&B diva’s sister posted online.

The ad contained two photos of Carey and promised her “sweet, sweet fantasy” services, a riff on the lyrics of her famous sibling’s 1995 hit “Fantasy.”

As we’ve reported, the sisters don’t exactly see eye to eye, to say the least.
