A strip club in Texas that hired a 14-year-old as an exotic dancer says it was swindled and is suing the seventh-grader and her parents.
The girl allegedly exposed her breasts while working at Cheetah Club in Corpus Christi, a violation of state law. Alan Yaffe, the club's attorney, said the club didn't know the girl was a minor and disputed the alleged sequence of events that led the teenager to work there in the first place.

What’s david letterman’s take on this?
He hit it
San Antonio supports an amazing number of strip clubs.
Every other person you meet works in one, or is married to someone who does. It’s wierd.
Sodom and Gomorrah
The club is in Corpus; the girl is from San Antonio.
I am not a prude by any means, but the Dems really want to push the degradation of society to the point where the Roman Empire looks like a stable culture.
The SF Pope butt plugs says it all about the Dems.
WHERE WAS THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?????
Marital Aids - just tryin’ to keep families together. /sarc
I'm sure she had a very official looking computer printout showing she was eligible for the job.
Strip clubs are wicked places, they are really houses of prostitution in my opinion.
Mr. Yaffe, your hired!
14 & in 7th grade?
Don’t we need pics to judge this situation?
There are also a lot of clubs in El Paso..so I hear of course.
“...to the point where the Roman Empire looks like a stable culture.”
Roman republic lasted about three times as long as we have, the Empire more than twice as long.
Stan Freberg had an old radio skit about the Vegas hotels ‘El Sodom’ and ‘Rancho Gomorrah”
She had a certificate of live birth posted on the internet
This girl was 14, same age as Willow Palin. This girl claims she was kidnapped and raped, but most of you are discarding that and giving credence to the strip club owner. Might want to wait and see. AND, the jackass that asked for pictures of a 14 yo girl be posted on FR is in the same class as Letterman.
The teen says she was driven to Corpus Christi by a man named Leslie Campbell. She told investigators Campbell took her to a strip club where he made her apply for a job using a fake ID with the picture of his ex-girlfriend. The girl said she worked at the club for one night.
According to investigators, the teen got away from the 48-year-old while he showered at a friend's apartment. After wandering around, she finally spotted and flagged down a police officer for help.
Investigators said the teen had grabbed documents from Campbell that later helped officers track him down.
According to police, the teen had injuries and marks on her body. Investigators said Campbell had expectations of how much money the girl should bring in each night, and that when she didn't meet those expectations, she was beaten.
The girl was checked out by doctors at a Corpus Christ hospital and was then reunited with her family.
Campbell was arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping. He told police the girl made up the entire story.
Who ya gonna believe?
“There was no real kidnapping,”
As I said in my post, the girl.
Her copy was placed online.
The girl, (even if guilty) is a child.
We don’t need pictures.
You wanna see photos of a 14yo girl?
It's from Hawaii...
Strip clubs are run by drugs. The girls’ bosses let the dealers in to keep them working and dependent there. The money the girls get is thrown into “feel good” powders. It’s evil incarnate, much like a roach motel. No wonder Obama is associated with them.
I know of a certain Union worker who bragged about doing and selling drugs to strippers and his coworkers. This stuff comes full circle and will become common knowledge as Obama asserts power but wussies from foreigners. Iranians are his “ideological dope” providers after all...
That’s not a very attractive 14-year old girl.
Born in Hawaii was she?
Could be she joined a gang thinking she’d be the queen of the dudes there and got disappointed, ratted them out.
They should all go to the slammer, imo.
Obama’s girls are going to be disapointed.
That is true, Drugs are in strip clubs heavily.
No. The girl is underage.
Sanjaya Zero ?
Could be, maybe that’s Shaniqua Tay-Tay Zero?
That is one aggressive lawyer!
Having dealt with parents of tough love kids for a number of years, I can safely say this kids recitation of events and the actual events may only be loosely related. Do not underestimate the ability of some of these young teens to make up plausible lies. The truth events may never be known.
Somehow you just had to know, there was an Obama constituent involved...
Who could NOT have guessed?
Texas has the death penalty.....
This is a PERFECT application.

Dirty bastards aint they?
Club sues 14-year-old it hired as stripper
Lawsuit also is filed against girl's parents, police chief and accused kidnapper

CORPUS CHRISTI — An adult nightclub is suing a 14-year-old girl saying club officials were tricked into hiring her as a stripper.
The club also is suing her parents, the police chief and a man accused of kidnapping, raping and forcing her to work as a stripper.
RJL Entertainment Inc., also known as Club Cheetah, filed the lawsuit last week, which asks for a declaration from a judge saying the club acted in good faith and didn’t intend to hire a minor.
The suit alleges the girl and the man accused of kidnapping her conspired to get her hired “by the unlawful means of fraud, deceit, chicanery and deception.”
The club’s attorney, Alan Yaffe said Wednesday that club officials wouldn’t have hired the girl had she not shown what looked like a valid driver’s license indicating she was an adult.
“We’re the victims of their criminal conspiracy,” he said. “They flim-flammed us.”
The suit alleges the club suffered various damages because of the actions of the girl and the man including interference with the sexually oriented business permit issued by the police chief, wrongful arrest of an employee and loss of reputation in the community.
The suit doesn’t list the name of the girl or those of her parents.
City Attorney Mary Kay Fischer said Thursday she was aware of the suit but couldn’t comment because interim Police Chief Mike Walsh had not yet been served.
An investigation began in March after the 14-year-old flagged down a Corpus Christi police officer and said she was kidnapped from San Antonio and brought to Corpus Christi. She told police she escaped while her abductor was in the shower.
Leslie Campbell, 48, is accused of being her abductor. He was indicted last week on four counts of sexual assault of a child, according to online court records.
Jail officials said he remains behind bars with more than a $1 million in bonds on the four counts and suspicion of aggravated kidnapping.
Prosecutor Doug Mann said it would be up to Bexar County authorities to seek an indictment on any kidnapping charges because the girl says she was taken from San Antonio.
Last month, police arrested Jeffery Shawn Martinez a club manager, on suspicion of sexual performance of a child and employment harmful to a minor. Martinez, 34, is free on bond.
A Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission investigator has said authorities believe Martinez knew the girl was underage when he hired her.
Yaffe wouldn’t comment on Martinez’s case or employment status except to say he is represented by another attorney. He wouldn’t provide the attorney’s name.
