SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y., Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Authorities in New York state said a woman was arrested for allegedly hiring strippers to perform for the teen guests at her 16-year-old son's birthday party.

Saratoga County District Attorney James Murphy said Judy Viger, 33, hired two strippers from a company called Tops in Bottoms to perform in a private room Nov. 3 at the Spare Time Bowling Center in South Glens Falls, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

Investigators said the women performed "personal and intimate" dances with the party guests, who were as young as 13 years old.

"The charges stem from an allegation that she endangered not only the welfare of her own child, but the welfare of the 14- and 15-year-old children that were at the birthday party as well," Murphy told the Glens Falls Post-Star.

Viger was arrested Monday and charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Tops in Bottoms officials said the dancers were unaware the party-goers were underage. Police said the company is cooperating with the investigation and employees are not facing any charges.
