Desperado's co-owner pleads guilty in federal case

A co-owner of Desperado's Caberet has pleaded guilty to federal racketeering charges.

Dipvak Vora is the fifth person to plead guilty in connection with the December 2012 sting at the Carencro strip club.

Prosecutors say Vora, who owned the building and the land on which the club was located, knew the club engaged in prostitution as far back as 2006. They also argued that Vora was paid $500,000 in cash in illegal funds from the club.

Vora faces five years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.
