Mom indicted for hiring stripper for son
‘It didn’t harm him,’ mother says of effect on 16-year-old son

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A mother faces criminal charges after she hired a stripper to dance at her 16-year-old son’s birthday party.

Anette Pharris, 34, has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and involving a minor in obscene acts. The boy’s father, the stripper and two others also face charges.

“I tried to do something special for my son,” Pharris said. “It didn’t harm him.”

About 10 people under the age of 18 were at the birthday party in September, including minors who were not related to the family, authorities said.

Police spokesman Don Aaron said minors are not permitted in adult establishments.

“A person shouldn’t be allowed to circumvent that law by hiring a stripper, a lady who took all her clothes off and spent a good amount of time dancing around minors,” he said.

Anette Pharris took photos at the party and tried to have them developed at a nearby drug store. Drug store employees notified authorities, police said.

“Who are they to tell me what I can and can’t show to my own children?” the mother said.

As non-chalant as she is about it, I'm suprised she wasn't the one that did the stripping.  icon_lol.gif

The son probably would have run out of the house kicking and screaming... along with everyone else.  icon_wink.gif

Let's do the math shall we:

34-16=18

So she became a mom when she was still a child herself. Sounds like she never grew up.

I bet she's uttered the phrase "I want to be friends with my kid(s)" many times over the past 16 years.

If she didn't do this with other minor children present (unless their parents gave permission) then who IS the State to tell the parent she can't do that?

I'm with you on that, JT.

I have to also admit I thought maybe SWL was bragging about himself at one point  icon_lol.gif

Or at least thought it made good joke fodder.

I agree JT....having other kids there without their parents permission is where I would have to say she'd be in trouble anyway,but if it was in your own house with your own son,I don't see the governments reason to butt in....so to speak... icon_wink.gif

I'd have to agree as well.  Although it's pretty sick and immoral, I don't see it as breaking any sort of law.  If there were other kids there, then that's different though.
