GREENVILLE, SC (WSAP) – A Greenville County judge has ordered the closure of Platinum Plus for 180 days after finding the company in criminal contempt for violating a 2015 court order.

Judge Charles Simmons ordered the strip club to shut down within 14 days and pay $100,000 in fines. Those fines would then be used to buy body cameras for the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.

Once the club reopens, the judge has ordered an extended 12-month period of monitoring to be paid for by Platinum Plus.

13th Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins asked a judge to close the club after he says the club disobeyed a 2015 agreement banning nudity and simulated sex acts.

Platinum Plus reopened in November after it was previously forced to close for 6 months following at least 20 arrests after a nearly year-long undercover prostitution investigation there by Greenville County Sheriff’s Office agents.
