OH law prohibits anyone who isn't a family member to touch a nude or semi-nude dancer.

The law places a wide range of restrictions, including no naked dancing after midnight, limits on when dancers can touch patrons and which clubs with liquor licenses can continue to stay open despite featuring nude dancing. "I deeply apologise to my fans in Columbus", Daniels said in a statement posted by Avenatti.

Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein said his office had determined that Daniels committed no crime because she did not perform regularly at the club, as required under the law, and confirmed that the charges were dismissed. The document alleges that Daniels "did put both hands on officer's buttocks, both hands on officer's breast, then put her breast in officer's face". "The officers also observed Ms. Clifford fondling the breasts of female patrons", Franklin County Municipal Court records show.

Another detective who was standing back by the bar said he witnessed the "criminal activity". Daniels allegedly made her way toward two detectives, leaned over and grabbed their faces. Daniels, Miranda Panda of Marion, Ohio, and Brittany Walters of Pickerington, Ohio, were each charged in the undercover operation. "My understanding is that a number of undercover officers were female, which was not unusual to my client because a huge number of women are turning out to see her shows", he said.

Daniels has been embroiled in a lawsuit with the president since early March, to get out of a non-disclosure agreement relating to an alleged affair she had with him in 2006. The strip club where she reportedly performed, called Sirens, also declined to comment when asked about the matter. "This was a setup & politically motivated". According to TMZ, the customer Daniels allowed to "motorboat" her turned out to be Columbus police officer Mary Prather. He vowed to fight the "bogus charges", even suggesting there are "higher priorities" at stake for the police.

"She was there for her performance, and unbeknownst to her, the police set up a sting operation within the strip club with multiple officers", said Avenatti.

'This was a setup and politically motivated.

"It reeks of desperation", Avenatti tweeted.

Later Thursday morning, Avenatti noted, "My client @StormyDaniels will issue a plea of "Not Guilty" to the three misdemeanor charges". In 2016, Daniels sued Trump claiming that he never signed the nondisclosure or "hush" agreement, in hopes of making it invalid.
