Washington, Apr 29 (ANI): A woman in US, who let her 17-year-old daughter work as a stripper, has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Christina Marie Lopez of Salem pleaded guilty Wednesday to attempted use of a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, CBS News reported.
The issue came to light in December when 42-year-old Lopez complained to police and media that a strip club had hired her underage daughter.
According to Lt. Steve Birr with Salem police, investigators later obtained surveillance video from the business "that showed Lopez in the club watching her daughter dance and providing her money," the Statesman Journal revealed.
Lopez's daughter, now 18-year-old Nicole Madril, said her mother was not at the club to watch her dance.
"It's not like she came in there and got 50 lap dances from me.
"She came in and gave me money so I could get myself something to eat," Madril said.
After entering her guilty plea on Wednesday, Lopez was sentenced to 3 years in prison, 3 years of post-prison supervision, and must register as a sex offender. (ANI)
