Mother arrested for inviting strippers to 16-year-old son’s birthday party
A woman in New York was arrested Monday for allegedly hiring strippers to attend her 16-year-old son’s birthday party.
Judy Viger, 33, has been charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.
Police said Viger paid for two adult female entertainers to perform “personal and intimate dances” at the birthday party at Spare Time Bowling Center in South Glens Falls last year. The party was attended by five teens younger than 17.
“The charges stem from an allegation that she endangered not only the welfare of her own child, but the welfare of the 14- and 15-year-old children that were at the birthday party as well,” Saratoga County District Attorney James Murphy said.
Outraged parents of the young teens contacted the media and the police. Officials were originally told the strippers were just a “bikini gram,” but authorities learned otherwise after viewing pictures and talking to witnesses about the event.
