SALEM, Ore. (AP) – A Beaverton strip club has agreed to end its contract with the Oregon Lottery amid an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse and prostitution involving an underage girl.

A Lottery spokesman says Stars Cabaret & Steak House has not admitted any wrongdoing and the company expects to be vindicated.

Lottery Director Jack Roberts said in a statement that even though the criminal investigation is not over, the agency decided there is “sufficient basis” to end its contract.

Contracts at three other Starts Cabaret locations are not affected, and Roberts did not rule out the Lottery someday returning to the Beaverton location.

Officers arrested a Stars employee last year after a 14-year-old girl told authorities that in 2012 she was forced into prostitution in a back room of the strip club
