Again With The Hookers?

by

During Chris Teague's first trial for collecting the earnings of a prostitute, the Boise strip club and escort service owner was defiant both on the stand and on the readerboard in front of his State Street strip club Night Moves, which read:

GREAT FOOD

HOT BABES

NOT GUILTY

That trial ended in a hung jury in May. Teague's second trial for the same charges commenced this Monday, at which time Night Moves' readerboard offered a quite different sentiment:

GREAT FOOD

HOT BABES

DANCERS WANTED

Perhaps a decline in the applicant pool is to be expected following a trial in which a parade of former employees regaled local audiences with testimony of Teague requiring them to have sex with him to get a job; Teague making them strip naked during interviews so he could make sure they weren't wearing wires; Teague requiring escorts, through careful wording, to have sex with local horndogs who patronized his AAA Anytime Escort Services. Dancers notwithstanding, the club remains open and Teague has not been legally branded a pimp. The testimony in the new trial was set to begin after press time on Tuesday, June 19.
