RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Attorneys for former strip club owner Sam Moore want evidence seized in a raid on Club Velvet thrown out of court.
Moore is accused of tax evasion by the Federal government. His now-closed strip club in Shockoe Bottom was raided in 2008.
His attorney's say evidence for the tax case was seized improperly without a federal warrant.
Federal investigators built their case on evidence collected during the execution of a state search warrant.
The U.S. Attorney's Office still has several days to respond to the motion. Moore goes on trial November 17.
