According to the Smoking Gun, the father of a Pennsylvania high school student is facing criminal charges for a party he threw in his home where teens as young as 14 drank rum, vodka, and beer and cheerleaders danced on a stripper pole.According to police documents in Bethlehem Township, Steven Russo, 36, hosted a party at his house after a basketball game where the teens spent most of their time in the basement drinking and listening to Russo's "sex stories about all the girls he has been with." Russo is also accused of having a room on the second floor of his home that was called "the cave" --a place "where people go to have sex." Police learned about the party last month after a student tipped off Freedom High School's cheerleading coach that pictures from the evening had appeared on Facebook. According to a report in the The Express-Times in Lehigh Valley, Russo is facing nine counts of endangering the welfare of children, eight counts of furnishing alcohol to minors, and nine counts of corruption of minors.
