She said every dancer is required to provide identification, which is photocopied, and is required to sign a contract. The contract spells out the dancers are not to provide sexual favors, prostitute themselves or use drugs.
Joan Dumoulin identified photographs of the inside of Little Daddy’s stating the VIP room where patrons were charged $10 for lap dances has been removed and the inside of the club is now a large, open area.
She said the doors leading to the bathrooms were cut to allow bartenders to see if two people were where only one should be.
Dumoulin said the people making the allegations against her son were seeking plea agreements with the prosecutor’s office on other pending cases.
“This is an ongoing thing,” she said. “It’s a political situation. There are people that want to take his business away.”
Nate Tilloe, who oversees the bartenders at the three clubs owned by Dan Dumoulin, said there is a dance code for the dancers.
He said patrons are allowed to touch the dancers on uncovered areas and that dancers have been fired for inappropriate behavior.
Dave Fettig, a security guard at the clubs, said he has witnessed inappropriate behavior of a sexual nature between the dancers and patrons.
“I tell them to get dressed and go home,” he said. “I then tell Dan [Dumoulin] so they can be terminated.”
Rick Deyo, a local businessman, asked the board to revoke the license under the moral character, public nuisance and criminal offense portion of the state law.
“We now have police and prosecutor involvement,” he said. “The laws need to be followed and enforced.”
Deyo said the license renewal should be denied for the safety of county residents and the image of the community.
Webb said Dumoulin’s business is only as strong as the weakest person who works for him.
“There have been a lot of problems with his establishments,” Webb said. “Nothing that [says] Dan endorses or condones this behavior [is] in the probable cause. He is trying to do more to insure this activity doesn’t happen.”
Webb said it was unfair to “lower the boom” on Dumoulin and not give him the opportunity to answer the criminal charges.
