Talker: NY woman charged with hiring strippers for teen son`s birthday

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Judy Viger, 33, of New York was charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child after hiring two exotic dancers to work at her teenage son's birthday party.

80 people—including five teens under the age of 17---attended the party for Viger's son's 16th birthday which was held at a bowling alley. According to authorities, some kids were reportedly as young as 13 years old and several teens got lap dances.

As local TV stations and newspapers have been reporting, soon after the party, raunchy photos were posted online. Police are said to have been called when another mom saw the photos on her son's Facebook page.

Viger tweeted on Wednesday that she wants to tell the "truth" about what happened but cannot talk to the media right now. She also tweeted, "who are people to judge me? Only God can judge me."

Her Twitter page also seems to suggest a casual attitude toward young people. A month before the party, she re-tweeted a message from a girl who apparently just turned 16.

It says: "It's my (bleeping) birthday (bleeps) #16finally!" Viger then said to the girl: "happy birthday! Now u can drive me around after I've had a drink."

What do you think of the charges against Viger and the possible prison time? Please share your thoughts on our Facebook page.
