A lawyer pleaded not guilty on behalf of his client, a Red Deer nightclub, on Monday to 12 counts of admitting minors.

The defence counsel for the numbered corporation behind the former Tequila Nightclub, 1476956 Alberta Ltd., elected to go to trial on charges under the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Act. The lawyer declined to give his name.

Red Deer commissioner David Ellis set a trial date of Feb. 12 in Red Deer provincial court.

Tequila lost its appeal to keep its business licence and had to shut down last month.

The City of Red Deer’s Inspections and Licensing Department decided to permanently revoke the nightclub’s licence in September after safety concerns were raised.
