A judge in Greenville County has ordered the closure of Platinum plus for the second time in a two year period after a ruling, finding the exotic dance club in in contempt of court.

Judge Charles Simmons ordered the club to be closed for 180 days, along with over $100,000 in fines.

Platinum Plus was originally closed in 2015 after undercover Greenville County Sheriff's Office deputies investigated prostitution at the club.

As a result of the investigation, Wilkins signed a consent order requiring Platinum Plus to no longer be a "sexually oriented business." Under the order, exotic dancing was still allowed but no nudity was permitted, requiring dancers to wear pasties and some type of bottoms.

After reviewing randomly selected segments of the surveillance video, Wilkins said multiple violations were observed between November and March, including dancers wearing garments that failed to meet the minimum coverage requirement, and performing simulated sexual acts on customers and other dancers.

Wilkins' order claims that dancers deliberately tried to conceal their activities from the view of the cameras in the "Champagne Room" and "Couch Room."

The judge ordered the club shut down within the next two weeks and has ordered the Greenville County Sheriff's Office to take measures to secure the property.
