R.I. high court denies strip club’s appeal of punishment
Rhode Island’s highest court has refused to hear a Providence strip club’s appeal of a punishment the city had levied against it over allegations of prostitution.
The Rhode Island Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the Wild Zebra’s bid to have its adult entertainment license restored.
The court did not explain why it would not consider the appeal.
The Providence Board of Licenses heard testimony in January from two detectives who said that while undercover at the Wild Zebra Gentlemen’s Club in May, dancers offered to have sex with them or perform sexual acts on them in exchange for money.
The club denies the allegations.
