Crackdown urged on clubs that hire underage dancers

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Administrators with Covenant House and a local judge on Thursday urged the City Council to crack down on strip clubs that hire underage dancers.

They asked the city to enforce existing laws that prohibit clubs from hiring anyone under 21 to dance, which some say it's a pipeline to human trafficking.

Covenant House leaders also called for tougher laws that would close businesses that violate the law.
