Judy Viger, from Saratoga County in upstate New York, who hired two strippers for her son's 16th birthday party, according to CNN:
Judy Viger, 33, of Gansevoort is charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child, District Attorney James Murphy said in a statement. The parents of five teens who attended the party reported the presence of strippers to police.
The mother hosted the teens (and the strippers) at a bowling alley, the article says. The parents who reported the incident to police saw photos of the strippers on their teens' Facebook pages. There was even a photo of Viger getting a lap dance.
The teens probably appreciated Viger's party planning but the parents were obviously angry and rightfully so. So maybe the boys are at that age where they sneak onto YouTube (among other sites) and search videos that are R rated, but that doesn't make it okay for a mother to openly expose the kids to strippers.
I can't decide which would be more disturbing, seeing photos of your son getting a lap dance, seeing your mother get a lap dance or getting a lap dance in front of your mother knowing she paid for it. It's just altogether a messed up situation.
