(In his basement? Where does he live, above a gentleman’s club?) Read the full report here.
EARLIER: Nothing says you’re a cool dad like hosting booze parties, sharing tales of your sexual exploits and encouraging HS cheerleaders to take turns on the stripper pole in your basement. The details of this story are truly amazing!
Police in Bethlehem, PA say it all started with an angry member of the Freedom High School cheerleading squad. That girl found a Facebook picture of a rival on the squad, wearing her cheerleader outfit, working a stripper pole in the basement of Steven Russo’s (pictured, right) home. She turned that over to the cheerleading coach and–based on the unwritten rules about underage cheerleaders and stripper poles–she was removed from the squad . . . but not your imagination, eh? (Below is a video of a young lady having a little problem with her pole routine.)
But the fun doesn’t end there! A second picture then surfaces of Russo, 36, being kissed on the cheek by two girls aged 14 & 16. All of those were turned over to a high school resource officer (cop) which launched into an investigation of accusations that Russo–who has a 17-year-old son–hosted a booze party at his house on December 12, 2008. At one point, Russo alleged turned up the music called out to the teens, “Get on the pole!” Oh, and there was alleged a “sex room” called “The Cave” upstairs that the teens could use. (Incredible details below) Russo is now charged with nine counts of endangering the welfare of children, eight counts of furnishing alcohol to minors and nine counts of corruption of minors.
Here’s more from Lehigh Valley Live:
The teens allegedly listened to Russo spin tales about his sexual exploits and drank vodka, rum and beer he gave them. They also mingled in the basement while he played music and shouted, “Get on that pole,” according to a criminal complaint filed by Bethlehem Township police at the office of District Judge Joseph Barner.
Also according to court documents:
Freedom High School teacher Carrie McAndrews approached police with photos from the alleged party Feb. 4 and cheerleading coach Alicia Zito told police she was shown photos by a member of the squad culled from the social networking site Facebook.
The photos show teenage girls using the “stripper” pole while dancing and two girls kissing Russo on his face.
Zito told police one girl in the photos wearing a Freedom cheerleading outfit while dancing with the pole was dismissed from the squad.The students identified in the photos said they had been to Russo’s many times and the house was known as a place to hang out and drink — one said “a lot” of kids were at the house that night.
The girls said Russo did not try anything with them, but encouraged one 16-year-old as she removed her shirt during the Dec. 12 party. One teen mentioned Russo’s house has a room called “the cave” on the second floor where people have sex. One boy claimed he was there that night because another teen planned to have sex and he was “hooking up,” with one of the other girls. The boy said they left after his friend was finished.
A 14-year-old girl said she drank Red Bull and vodka at the party and Russo’s son became sick from excessive consumption. She later sneaked out of the house with a friend because “the rule is that if you drink alcohol there you have to sleep over because (Russo) doesn’t want to get in trouble …”
