    MI - Detroit strip club busted for 14 y. old learning disabled stripper

    http://detnews.com/article/20100424/...367/1006/rss01

    Mom wants strip club that hired girl, 14, shut

    From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/article/20100424/...#ixzz0m23KAFuZ

    The mother of a 14-year-old with a learning impairment was "in shock" after learning her daughter was employed at a strip club, dancing two or three nights a week under the stage name "Fantasy."

    Now, Andrew Hutson, the 31-year-old manager of the All Star topless bar on Eight Mile near Schaefer, faces charges of child sexual abusive activity, a 20-year felony. And police vow to seek a termination of the club's license. But a lawyer for the club said they had no idea the girl was underage and argues police are overreacting amid a crackdown on clubs pushed by powerful pastors.

    The girl's mother, whom The Detroit News is not naming, also wants the club shut down. She said she discovered the truth after calling her daughter's friend Wednesday...."

    and

    "The girl, a high school freshman, does not look older than 14, her mother said. She said she did not know what her daughter was doing with the hundreds of dollars she earned during at least two months dancing at the club.

    "I never saw any money," she said.

    and

    "...."She has some issues [ETA: The mother said referring to her daughter]." When asked if she felt the club was taking advantage of her daughter because of her disability, the woman nodded......."

    Been there. The next step is trafficking. This makes me so so sad. My heart goes out to both the mother and the daughter.

    Just a kind request for caution, folks. I know that some are saying, "How could that woman not know where her child was?" Our family didn't know. Our daughter, who is also disabled was tremendously gifted at her ability to slide under the radar (with help, of course). We watched her very carefully and she always had an escort when leaving the house. She had a personal aid at school who shadowed her and made sure she never left campus. She participated in a Life Skills program where she was well supervised. She sang in the city choir but went with an escort. She volunteered at a nearby nursing home but we dropped her off and picked her up.

    Imagine our shock to find out that a car had been stopping down the street from our house at 2 am for about two years before she turned 18. The men in the car were pimping her. We had no earthly idea. Imagine our shock to compare notes with her supervisor at the nursing home and find out that she was only volunteering 2 hours per week instead of the 10 we thought. We'd drop her off at the door and she'd wave and we'd drive away. Obviously a car was coming for her.

    She always had a reasonable excuse for every odd event. We'd find a strange cell phone and she'd immediately apologize and say it was a friends and that she borrowed it to play games on. We'd insist she return it. We found a stash of sexy/sleazy clothing once and she actually convinced us that a friend had asked her to hide it. She even "proved" it to us by showing us that she couldn't possibly fit into it. Yeah right. She managed somehow.

    It wasn't until she was living in one of our rental homes at 19 with a brother her own age that we really became suspicious. The brother started quietly telling us stories about her leaving late at night all "tarted up". When we confronted her, she accused him of lying. She finally took off one day which precipitated an all out search. Oddly, her pimp returned her to town only for her to leave again. She left behind a cell phone and that's how the police and FBI determined what names she'd been using and who some of her contacts are. Our sweet girl had been prostituting from about the age of 16 with our entire family missing the boat.

    If you happen to see a once lovely 22 year old black woman (with the most beautiful eyes you've ever seen) offering her services in the Sacramento, CA area, or anywhere else on the I-5 corridor, with the name of Neveah, Nevaeh, or Nevah, please let me know. I can't make her come home but I'd love to hear her voice. It's been almost three years.

    I will keep you and your daughter in my prayers. I cannot imagine how tough it would be to have to worry about your child like that.

    Izz, you just broke my heart.

    Nevaeh, where are you? My prayers are going up and staying up that she's somewhere safe, Izz.

    In all honesty I was going to ask myself..........well where the heck did this mom think this child was? At her friends house those two-three nights a week? Thank you for bringing those of us around that have no idea what it's like to have a young adult with a disabilty to raise.

    14? 14? Are they kidding with this lawsuit? They didn't know? Well, maybe they should have done some checking? No?

    My friend although her DD is an adult. Well, barely she pulled the same scam. It wasn't until DD's friend's little girl who my friend loved like her own pointed out a doll that she liked. She said her name is like "D's" for Diamond. My friend did a like "What do you mean sweetie?" The kid says "When you're at work my mom and D go to work and that's her work name". They all live in the same home.

    Note I in no way have anything against anyone of age dancing. It's the age thing. 14? They didn't know?

    We think (we are not positive) that our daughter danced at at strip club in nearby Medford for a short time. She would have been underage and the only way she could have produced a fake ID (she has no DL) would be if someone produced it for her. We've heard stories about a lovely black girl dancing at a club and no one recognized her. It would have been when she was 16-17 and she could have easily passed as 18.

    For some reason, unknown to me, this daughter sprung forth not long after her rape at age 8, as a very provocative and highly sexual being. It was very disturbing and none of us knew what to do about it. She had a city bus driver proposition her (he was fired), she had two 60+ year old guys follow her one day (and she actually called the police as they scared her). We know that she gave off the vibes. We believe that she met someone through her volunteer work (required for graduation in our town) who set her up with a pimp.

    Another part of the story that I didn't share is that over a period of time (maybe 8 months), I noticed that she was losing weight. I thought she was just losing her baby pudge and felt it was normal. One day, I happened to take a close look at her and asked her to get on the scale. Oh, how she argued. When she finally did, I was shocked. She's 5'6" and weighed 117. She's very curvy but her tummy was actually sunken in. I immediately called the school as I knew I had weighed her on the first day of school for her bus application (she road the special bus) and I about dropped the phone when the bus lady told me her application stated 161. She'd been wearing sweats under loose skirts and oversize t's to look heavier. We immediately got her to doctor and it turned out that she was malnourished and suffering from serious anorexia.

    She'd been hiding the fact that she wasn't eating from a number of adults who watched her carefully. She'd always, "just eaten", and no one bothered to check. We enrolled her in a special program at our hospital where she had to be weighed weekly and take a regimen of vitamins, keep an eating log, and go to therapy. She gradually started gaining some weight but it was tough and she was angry with us for insisting on staying in the program. That's about the time she ran.

    To this day, we believe that she didn't naturally develop anorexia. We think that the pimps were ordering her to slim down. You have to realize that I consider myself a hawk with my kids. I see every little odd detail. I missed every bit of this. Things like this make a person humble and break your heart. This young woman has broken a lot of people's hearts. Her nieces and nephews adored her. Our special needs dogs cuddled in her bed at night.

    When I think of her, I think of her standing in a circle of about 80 friends and family in a beautiful park on a golden October day in 2007. We were gathered to celebrate the birth and mourn the passing of our five hour old granddaughter. With heads bowed in meditation, as this unforgettable breeze rustled the gold and red trees, our girl stepped into the center and sang the most heavenly version of "Amazing Grace" a cappella. That's the memory I treasure.

    Here's a photo and description of our girl when she went missing:

    My heart goes out to the mother of this 14 year old. If she comes on this site, I truly hope she contacts me. I have learned a few things in the last couple of years.

    My half-sister, older than me by six months, has been dancing (and worse) since she was 15. Granted, I am not her mother, and it isn't my job to be my sister's keeper, so to speak, but she is a very small woman, very young looking, and I worry.

    I missed every sign of what was going on, and then denied the ones I did see, until I had to bail her out of jail for prostitution, and she told me everything. Her parents noticed nothing, and although I wouldn't call her mother and stepfather the best parents, they are perceptive.

    I think part of it is not wanting to believe what you see. We all noticed that her style of dress was changing, but she was getting older, and the worst that we could imagine was a boyfriend she didn't want us to know about. At that point she was dancing at a club in Detroit herself (although not the one named in this article), and turning $30 tricks in the parking lot. Her stories as to where she was at night were airtight, and her parents did not want to believe that other parents were lying for her.

    All I'm saying is that it is possible even for good parents to miss signs of things like this, because it is the things that you can't imagine that will destroy you the fastest.

    Question

    Missizzy, I found an article that says your daughter was found a few days after she was reported missing...

    http://www.mailtribune.com/apps/pbcs...NEWS/805230351

    Did she leave again after that? What was the second date of her disappearance?
