A woman accused of trafficking an 11-year-old girl on the Strip agreed to plead guilty to a child abuse charge, her attorney said. Gigi Mitchell, 40, faces several counts of child abuse and one count of child sex trafficking. The 11-year-old girl told social worker Felicia Tucker that she was a “hustler” and entered nightclubs where she drank and flirted with men.
More than 500 fans of Hello Kitty lined up for the grand opening of the Hello Kitty Cafe on the strip. The first 50 customers received a Hello Kitty themed keychain with their purchase. Hello Kitty appeared as a special guest to greet all of the fans in line and gave out hugs. By 7 p.m., the cafe sold more than 1000 pastries and beverages with 150 people still in line waiting for their treats.
