Walter McCrimmon, 44, has been suspended without pay from his job at Raleigh-Egypt High School in Shelby County, Tennessee after he was arrested for running an illegal "strip club."

In addition to the eight counts of promoting prostitution with which he was charged, McCrimmon was accused of the unlawful sale of alcoholic beverages as well as money laundering.

Undercover officers spent three months visiting the club, where they learned that patrons generally paid a $20 fee for exotic dancers to both perform and imitate sex acts. Patrons were also able to visit VIP rooms where they could pay for additional interactions with the illegal employees.

McCrimmon reportedly told undercover officers that it would cost $50 to have sex with one of the dancers.

The club is now shut down, and McCrimmon has been released on a $50,000 bond.

Hopefully McCrimmon's former students were safe from these illegal acts.
