U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Foote has ordered the seizure of Desperado’s Cabaret in Lafayette.

Prosecutors claim that drugs were dealt openly, and that customers could meet with performers in private rooms for sex.

The Advocate reports that the Carencro club has been closed since a December 2012 raid, and that 10 people have pleaded guilty in the case. That list includes Desperado’s business partners: Baton Rouge businessman James Panos and chemical engineer Dipak Vora.

Federal Judge Foote ordered the forfeiture of the club to the government Tuesday and ordered Vora to hand over $500,000. Panos agreed to forfeit around $15,000 dollars.
