The son of embattled Seattle strip club mogul Frank Colacurcio, Sr., is scheduled to plead guilty Friday, court records show.
If Friday’s hearing goes forward as scheduled, Frank Colacurcio, Jr., would join four other men associated with his father who’ve pleaded guilty to federal charges related to allegations of prostitution at the strip club chain. His father, who celebrated his 93rd birthday earlier this month, would become the sole remaining defendant.
In an indictment filed in June 2009, federal prosecutors accused Frank Colacurcio Sr., his son and four others of racketeering, using interstate commerce to facilitate prostitution, money laundering and mail fraud. At present, Colacurcio and his son are the only remaining defendants.
At issue are allegations that the strip clubs — Rick’s, Sugar’s in Shoreline, Honey’s in Everett and Fox’s in Tacoma — were used as fronts for prostitution that allegedly garnered the men $25 million in the four years preceding the indictment. Each of the clubs has since been closed as part of a plea agreement struck by the other defendants.
