PHOENIX -- A Phoenix strip club operator is facing child prostitution charges.

Alvin Yono, 31, would not give an interview on Monday at his family's home in a gated Fountain Hills neighborhood.

Yono is facing multiple counts of child prostitution, sex trafficking, and pandering, according to court documents. Those documents say the victims are three girls under the age of eighteen.

Prosecutors also allege that Yono had sex with the girls and then attempted to traffic the girls for sex.

The alleged crimes happened in late 2011 in the East Valley. Police in Gilbert investigated the case.

There is a hearing in the case scheduled for later this week.

Yono's family owns the notorious Blue Moon strip club at 2911 E Van Buren Street, according to public records. The club is still open for business.
