Omaha, NE (AP) - Three owners of a former exotic dance bar in downtown Omaha have pleaded not guilty to prostitution charges.

Omaha television station KMTV says Louis Venditte, his wife, Ruby Venditte, and John Wagstaffe made their pleas on Monday in U.S. District Court in Omaha.

The federal indictment says women working the stage at Goodfellas were encouraged by the Vendittes to engage in sex acts for extra cash. The Vendittes are accused of accepting payments from customers seeking sex.

Law enforcement raided the bar in October 2013 while serving a search warrant. It has since closed.
