Authorities say 24-year-old Auwin Dargin left his 9-month-old daughter in the car for an hour last month during an afternoon visit to the club. Authorities say the baby was found by employees of the club and a neighboring business. According to the Los Angeles Times, Dargin would leave the club every 15 minutes to check on the baby. He was reportedly angry when the strip club's manager interrupted a lap dance to tell him they had found his baby in the car. Dargin pleaded not guilty to the charge on Monday. He could face up to six years in prison if convicted.
