Innocent teenagers were knowingly exposed to harms way. I'm absolutely disgusted and appalled that by the irresponsibly of the hotel and it's employees. Our players sign a contract with the hotel outlining appropriate behavior which all the girls follow. The hotel itself neglected to uphold it's end of the contract by knowingly exposing our children to this degrading, immoral activity.

Three children who were victims of a swinger's club in a small East Texas town have been removed from the custody of their foster parents after accusing their caretakers of physical and emotional abuse, a child welfare official said Wednesday. A judge in Wood County on Tuesday ordered that the three siblings -- a year-old girl, year-old boy and a year-old girl -- plus a year-old boy be placed in the temporary custody of Child Protective Services, said Shari Pulliam, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
