Damaging testimony in day 4 of Sam Moore trial

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A key witness for the government presented the most damaging testimony of the week in the Sam Moore tax evasion trial.

Moore was the owner of Club Velvet, a former Shockoe Bottom strip club.

A former lap dance watcher told jurors Moore controlled the books and says he was grossly under reporting the money women made each night in lap dances.

She pointed specifically to the books from race-weekend in Richmond when the club was at it's busiest.

The defense has yet to present any witnesses.  If convicted Moore faces up to 11 years in prison.
