Strip Club Must Go Through Appeals Process - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock


Strip Club Must Go Through Appeals Process

Lubbock's only strip club could shut down in less than one month. On Tuesday, a Lubbock judge ruled the city has that decision.

The owner of Baby Dolls, Charles Westlund will go through the appeal's process before the Permits and Licensing Appeals Board on January 6th. The California businessman appeared before Judge Blair Cherry in an attempt to forgo that hearing but Judge Cherry denied his request.

The Lubbock Police Department rejected Westlund's operating license because he did not provide information about his felony forgery and tax evasion convictions. Lubbock city ordinances do not allow anyone to own or operate a sexually oriented business with felony convictions.

Westlund must win the appeals process to keep Baby Dolls open.
