Spanking Strippers Case Over with Misdemeanor Pleas

NOVEMBER 15, 2005 - Posted at 8:06 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Three dancers and two employees at a Jacksonville strip club have pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.  The pleas end a case in which a patron filed a complaint after he was spanked with a big wooden paddle on his birthday.  The case garnered national headlines.

Pulaski County District Judge Wayne Gruber dismissed second-degree battery charges against the dancers.  They were charged with the two employees after a Region 8 trucker from Bald Knob was spanked and bruised.

The dancers and employees of Sensations Night Club were each fined $100.  The judge ordered the paddle destroyed so it won't be sold on an online auction site.  The wooden paddle was 18 inches long, drilled with holes and was inscribed with the stage name of the woman who wielded it, "Velvet."

The club has since ended the birthday spankings.  Prosecutor Larry Jegley says cake and ice cream parties should be given instead.
