Teenage girl sexually abused, exploited at Scores strip club: lawsuit


A new lawsuit accuses a Scores strip club of illegally employing a teenage girl at one of its Florida locations and allowing her to be abused and exploited.

The alleged victim, who’s described as a developmentally disabled and emotionally disturbed teen, said a man she knew in 2017 brought her to the club in Tampa that year and put her on the stage within a half-hour, according to court papers obtained by ABC News.AdvertisementPauseUnmuteLoaded: 0%Progress: 0%Remaining Time -0:31Fullscreen

The plaintiff accuses the strip club chain of failing to confirm her age or identity, a shocking allegation she claims to be part of a pattern across the company. The strip club giant was featured in the 2019 movie “Hustlers,” featuring Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B.

“Enabling and profiting from the sexual abuse of a developmentally disabled teenage girl is deplorable even by the standards of the adult entertainment industry,” attorney Michael Dolce, whose Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll law firm represents the teen, told the news outlet.

Scores could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon.
