Will it be illegal to tip strippers in Galveston?

City leaders are considering a ban against tipping strippers, which could mean fines or even jail time for violators.R.J. Purdue owns Wisper’s Cabaret, a strip club, which, according to police, is the only sexually oriented business inside the city.

The ordinance is just a proposal.  There was no vote by the city council.  If eventually approved, though, the ordinance would drastically change the way some businesses do business.

Purdue is referring specifically to wording that would make it illegal for customers to tip nude or semi-nude dancers, punishable by up to a $4,000 fine and a year in jail.  The ordinance also addresses motels that rent rooms for less than a full night.

Father & Son sex trafficking case

A Wisconsin man and his son for years forced teenage girls and women to perform at Milwaukee-area strip clubs and sent them to bars to find men who would pay for sex, beating their victims if they did not come home with enough cash each evening, according to court documents.

A federal grand jury indictment unsealed Thursday charges David B. Moore, 45, and his son Najee C. Moore, 22, with conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking, sex trafficking of a minor and other crimes. The indictment replaces an earlier one naming Najee Moore alone.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, David Moore ran the prostitution ring from February 2008 to December 2009. After he was sentenced to prison, he encouraged his son to continue the business, which federal officials say Najee Moore did from 2011 to his arrest earlier this year.

Both men face life in prison if convicted.
