SALEM, Ore. (AP) - State regulators have launched an investigation into a Beaverton strip club over allegations it employed underage dancers.
Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian on Wednesday filed a complaint against Stars Cabaret in Beaverton alleging sexual harassment of minors.
The complaint alleges that from July to September 2014 the club employed a girl under 16 years of age. This came after a former manager of the strip club was arrested in 2013 for his role in the prostitution of another minor, a 13-year-old girl, hired in 2012 to dance nude for customers and have sex with them in a back room.
That manager was sentenced last year to 15 years in prison.
Avakian’s complaint says the company failed to take action to prevent future sexual exploitation of minors.
