… in other strip club news [JUDY VIGER UPDATE]
Judy H. Viger has so far rejected a plea deal offer that would result in the criminal charges being dropped if she stayed out of trouble for 6 months, completed a parenting class and met other unspecified conditions.
The Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office has offered an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, which means the charges would be dropped if Viger was not arrested within 6 months and complied with Moreau Town Court directives.
Her lawyer, Joseph Brennan, said it was unclear Wednesday whether his client would accept the plea.
She faces five counts of endangering the welfare of a child in connection with a party last Nov. 3 at the South Glens Falls bowling alley that was then known as Spare Time Family Fun Center. She is accused of damaging the “physical, mental or moral welfare” of the children by exposing them to strippers who performed lap dances in their underwear.
The party was organized to celebrate her son’s birthday in a private room at the business, but numerous teens were present, some as young as 13.
Parents of most of the children in attendance did not know of the exotic dancer involvement until well after the party, when photos of the bash showed up on social media websites, prompting some to complain to police.
Brennan has said his client hired women to sing “happy birthday” to her son in bathing suits as “bikini grams” and she did not intend to have exotic dancers perform at the party.
