“Lawsuit Claims Tampa Strip Club Facilitated Human Trafficking of Disabled Teen,” Tampa Bay Times
January 29, 2020
She was a troubled teenager who ran away from home and was coaxed into working at a strip club in Tampa, police said. A human trafficking charge against the man police said was responsible was later reduced, and resulted in a probation sentence.
Now, Scores Gentlemen’s Club has been accused of letting it happen.
Police later located the girl and rescued her. She has since undergone mental health treatment, said Michael Dolce, the South Florida lawyer representing the girl.
“She is working very hard to restore her life,” Dolce said.
Dolce, the girl’s lawyer, alluded to the possibility of further civil action against the son.
“I’m not finished with Mr. Torres,” he said. “I think my client’s essential goal is to hold everyone accountable who played a role in her victimization."
