Cops: Mom hired strippers for teen's birthday

February 19, 2013 4:59:52 AM PST
Police say a 33-year-old upstate New York woman accused of hiring strippers for her son's 16th birthday party has been arrested on child endangerment charges.

South Glens Falls police tell local media outlets Judy Viger of Gansevoort faces five counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

They say she hired two women who did lewd dances for five teens under the age of 17 during the party at a bowling alley.

The investigation began after people concerned about the November party showed authorities racy photos posted online. One showed a scantily clad, tattooed woman clinging upside down to a seated teen as others looked on.

The answering machine at Viger's phone number wasn't accepting messages Monday.

No other arrests are expected.

South Glens Falls is in Saratoga County, 44 miles north of Albany.
