OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 67-year-old man has admitted running a prostitution operation out of his exotic-dance bar in Omaha.

Louis Venditte pleaded guilty on Tuesday to four federal prostitution charges, including one involving the transport of women from Iowa to Nebraska. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 10.

Venditte’s wife, Ruby Venditte, and John W. Wagstaffe have pleaded not guilty to prostitution charges, accused of being partners in the operation at the former Goodfellas bar. Law enforcement raided the bar in October 2013 while serving a search warrant. The bar has since closed.

Ruby Venditte and Wagstaffe are scheduled to go on trial next month.
