South Glens Falls police said 33-year-old Judy Viger faces five counts of child endangerment for hiring two women to perform lewd dances for five teens under the age of 17 at a bowling alley on Nov. 3, 2012.

The investigation began after people concerned about the party showed authorities racy photos posted online. Police said the dancers performed "personal and intimate" dances on the teenagers, CBS affiliate WRGB-TV reported.

A person who works at the company where Viger allegedly hired the strippers told WRGB-TV that the incident was "blown out of proportion" and that the dancers were unaware the teens were underage.

Viger is due in court on March 7.
