Mom Allegedly Hires Strippers for Teen Son's Birthday Party

South Glens Falls P.D.(SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y.) -- A South Glens Falls, N.Y., mother of four is facing jail time after she is said to have hired two strippers to dance at her 16-year-old's birthday party. The birthday party took place in early November, but racy pictures surfaced on Facebook this month, causing a parent whose son was at the party to alert local police.

The South Glens Falls Police Department has charged Judy Viger with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Police say that five of the attendees were younger than 17, and according to the New York Daily News, some were as young as 13.

The birthday party took place in a room at the Spare Time Bowling Center and had 80 people in attendance, the Daily News reported, including other parents. The bowling alley released the following statement to ABC News:

"Spare Time Bowling Center can confirm that a private party did take place on November 3rd, 2012. We neither arranged for (nor paid for) the entertainment that was provided at the party. Spare Time has been cooperating fully with the investigation and will continue to do so."

In a press release, Police accused 33-year-old Viger of "organizing, managing, and paying" for the party, where two strippers performed "personal and intimate dances for some party attendees."

The strippers, who work for the company Tops in Bottoms, aren't facing charges.

Viger could not immediately be reached for comment, but posted on her Facebook page that she and her family have been going through a "difficult time."

South Glens Falls is a small town 200 miles north of New York City. Viger has her first court appearance scheduled for March 7.

Strippers in Class? La Salle University Professor Jack Rappaport Suspended

Comstock/Thinkstock(PHILADELPHIA) -- A La Salle University professor, Jack Rappaport, has been suspended for allegedly hiring strippers to give lap dances at an extra-credit seminar on business ethics.

Rappaport was in the front of the classroom and three bikini-clad and miniskirted women were on top of him giving him a lap dance, according to Brad Bernardino, a sophomore at La Salle who attended the March 21 session. At various other times, Bernardino added, the strippers gave willing students lap dances, and a PowerPoint presentation related to business ethics ran in the background.

Officials at La Salle University, a Catholic university in Philadelphia, said they were "very concerned" about the allegations and have "launched a full-scale investigation into what took place and who was responsible."

"Until the investigation has been completed," the university said in a written statement, "it would be unfair to those involved to disclose any further information, let alone suspicions or allegations. While the university is proceeding as quickly as possible, we recognize the importance of guarding against a rush to judgment in this situation."

The 57-year-old Rappaport's seminar reportedly cost each student $150 to attend and earned the students extra credit in Rappaport's business class.

Rappaport's biography on the La Salle University website says he has been an assistant professor of business management there since 1979.

"I try to enrich my teaching by using interesting real life applications such as the use of the horse race betting market in the teaching of statistics," Rappaport writes on his personal page.

Emails and calls to Rappaport by ABC News were not returned Tuesday.
