    Two dancers at a famous Rhode Island strip club have pleaded no contest to misdemeanor prostitution charges.

    The Providence Journal reports that 26-year-old Neish Rivera, of Pawtucket, and 32-year-old Melissa McNeely, of Madison, Connecticut, entered their pleas in Superior Court this week.

    Prosecutors say the women while working at the Foxy Lady in Providence offered to perform sex acts on undercover officers in the club's VIP section in exchange for cash, with the knowledge of club management. Management denied any knowledge of illegal activity.

    Rivera received six months' probation. McNeely's case will be dismissed if she stays out of trouble for one year. Their lawyer didn't respond to the newspaper's requests for comment.

    The case against a third woman is still pending. She has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor prostitution.
