A famous Nevada brothel owner is facing several codes violations at one of his Nye County brothels.
The Nye County Commission will hold a show cause hearing today on two code violations involving six prostitutes at Dennis Hof’s Area 51 Death Valley Cathouse brothel in Amargosa Valley.
A Nye County district attorney investigator conducted a brothel check in February, and found six of the 12 working women on duty had expired work cards and were not current on their medical clearance.
County code requires every prostitute working in a brothel must have a medical examination performed every seven days and must register with the Nye County Sheriff’s Office on a quarterly basis.
Hof told the Las Vegas Sun that the ordeal was a misunderstanding, and that he can prove his case if need be.
