A male stripper hired to perform for a group of teen-age girls faces lewd conduct charges after being accused of fondling at least four of them during his routine. The mother of the girl who held the party, accused of hiring the stripper, also faces charges.
The girls apparently were willing participants in the strip act last month, but Alameda County prosecutors said they were pursuing charges because the stripper touched four 15-year-olds during his 30-minute show.
The 39-year-old mother, whose name was withheld to protect her daughter, faces a felony charge of exhibiting lewd material to minors. The stripper -- Steven M. Schmitt, 29, of Walnut Creek -- faces four felony charges of lewd and lascivious conduct with minors.
