Lexington Strip Club Loses Liquor License For One Month

A strip club is about to lose its liquor license for a month because police caught a 14-year-old working there.

The 30 day suspension, at Camelot West in Lexington, begins Friday.

The club will also have to pay a $7,500 fine to the Kentucky Alcoholic Beverage Control.

The teen was found stripping at the club in March. Investigators say she used a fake ID to get hired.

Her aunt, Tina Hobbs, later admitted she took the teenager to the club, then took the money she earned there.

    Why did they not do something with the one who took her there. Have you ever seen the fake ids, they are just like the real ones. bad system

    Fake ID or not, the person that hired her had to know she was under age. I can't help but wonder what the first 14 years of her life have been like. I hope child services is looking into this and she has a brighter future!

    The KABC doesn't play around, sadly they are about the only people who keep this industry's check and balances in place. It's just a matter of time before Lexington is faced with the same restrictions as Cinnci, or even Knoxville. They just keep pushing the lines of "Adult Entertainment". The club manager should have asked her for another form of ID, Like a matching birth certificate. You would have to provide those things anywhere else in US that you seek employement, or atleast a SS. I don't agree with the Club, but I do think they need to file suit against the Aunt, or legal guardian of this child. I want to hear more on this story.

    Loose their liquor license for 1 month?? Why not shut the place down and prosecute some people and put that little girl with a family that loves her, not using her??? If she had been caught smoking, everyone involved one had been punished severally!!!!

    "The 14 year old used a fake ID". How did the club know she was underage. Have you seen the way 14 year old girls dress these days? Before you cast stones, perhaps you need to look at how you allow your daughter to dress to go out with friends. I have a 14 year old son and I have read his MySpace and text messages and listened to his voice mail. It amazes me how "little girls" have changed.

    I'm still trying to figure out what "Wantan" Endangerment is. "Wanton" maybe, but "Wantan?" Sounds like something you order at a Chinese restaurant.

    Sorry, But the aunt needs to be fined and placed in jail for Wantan Endangerment. Does she not realize what hangs out in that place? How could you take a child to a club to strip at age 14. Shame on YOU. Where was this girls mother?

    I think the club should have received a harsher punishment than losing a liquor license for one month and a fine. I also hope the aunt gets something serious out of this as well.

    Only a fine and loss of liquor license??? Are you kidding me??? This establishment should be shut down and the girl should be taken away from her insane family and placed into a loving foster home.
