Walter McCrimmon, a former teacher at Raleigh-Egypt High School, has been indicted for promoting prostitution, laundering money, possessing untaxed liquor, and storing liquor for sale at an adult night spot he operated in Southeast Memphis last year.

McCrimmon, 44, permanently closed Walt's Place last November after the District Attorney's office deemed the Place a "public nuisance" and temporarily closed the club following an undercover investigation by the Memphis Police Department's Organized Crime Unit Vice Team.

Vice squad investigators saw patrons purchase liquor illegally as well as pay women for lap dances and sex in a "VIP" room. Though scantily clad women worked at Walt's Place, the club did not have a required compensated dance permit.

McCrimmon resigned from his teaching position following his arrest.
