There was just one outstanding liquor license available in all of Utah and there were nine candidates who wanted to receive it and the license goes to……..
A strip club in South Salt Lake City: Deuces Wild. It looks like everything was completely fair. If that name Deuces Wild sounds familiar, it’s because they have actually been around a very long time. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that that Deuces lost their license over a year ago due to a dispute with the city. The Bar’s owner Rydell Mitchell was accused of witness tampering from a 2015 case. For that reason, the city decided he should be stripped of his bar license. Due to the “moral turpitude” clause in the law which gives cities their rights of stripping licenses from bars.
The city’s law defines a crime of “moral turpitude” as one that contains elements of fraud, theft, or intent to harm a person or property, and DeLand contends that attempted witness tampering doesn’t fit the bill.
