A 48-page lawsuit filed in Hillsborough County claims Scores Gentlemen’s Club hired a severely disabled teenager to perform at its Tampa location.

The girl, who’s identified as “Jane Doe” in the suit, was 13 when the alleged trafficker brought her to the strip club.

The girl was introduced to the club in September of 2017, the suit says.

“At the time of the events at issue, Jane Doe was a developmentally disabled and severely emotionally disabled teenager who, as a result of her disabilities, had a developmental age that substantially lagged her chronological age,” the suit reads.
