    Mother faces criminal charges for hiring stripper for son's 16th birthday party

    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 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.

    Police said 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.

    For the past few years, i've believed the age for viewing pornography, and entering strip clubs should be 16. I believe most of us encountered porn at that age, and it doesn't do a whole lot of damage.

    If you're old enough to die in a car reck after getting your driver's license, you're old enough to look at naked people.

    That doesn't account for the 14 year olds that had their pictures taken at the party with the stipper's face on their crotch.

    I've always thought it was quite wierd that you can do it all for real when you are 16, yet you can't watch it until you are 18!

    I do not believe a strip club age limit should be reduced though, it should be the same as any other club that serves alcohol.

    The mother in that article was 18 when she gave birth to her son. Teenage pregnancy; bad parenting, etc. all possible here.

    I knew a kid who had a stripper at his 16th birthday. He was a loser before (mother uses crack, both work as server persons [got pc?]), and remains a loser. I hardly think that having a stripper at a birthday party will affect the kids at all, especially at age 16. Did anybody on here not go to a beach/ see porn by the age of 16? I think the mother is at fault for letting said photos being developed at a public photo lab. She should be charged with grand stupidity.

    Who cares what the mother was doing? Heck, if my mom hired me a stripper for my next (16th) birthday, I would thank her many times. On the other hand, I doubt my mom would take pictures and have them developed at the local photo lab.

    I still don't see how it is the government's job to tell us what we can watch, when, and where, but that will probably go unanswered for the remaining part of my life.
