MOREAU, N.Y. (AP) – Charges will be dropped against a 34-year-old upstate New York mother who hired exotic dancers for her son’s 16th birthday party if she completes 50 hours of community service and stays out of trouble for six months.
Local media outlets report that Judy Viger of Gansevoort agreed to a plea deal Thursday that could lead to dismissal of the five misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Viger had been charged after two women did lewd dances for five teens under the age of 17 during the party at a bowling alley last November.
Viger’s lawyer has said she thought they’d only perform singing “bikini-grams” and was trying to stop them when things got out of hand.
Gansevoort is about 40 miles north of Albany.
