PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The third of three dancers from a famous Rhode Island strip club who had been charged with prostitution has been cleared.

The Providence Journal reports that 30-year-old Lindsay Hoffmann was found not guilty by a judge Wednesday of offering sex for money.

The Waterbury, Connecticut woman and two other dancers at the Foxy Lady in Providence were arrested in December. Authorities say the women offered to perform sex acts on undercover officers for cash with the knowledge of club management. Management denied knowledge of illegal activity.

The case came down to the word "anything." An officer testified that Hoffmann offered to do "anything" for $300, which he thought meant a sexual act. But the judge said "anything" did not necessarily mean something sexual.

The other dancers previously pleaded no contest.
