Stripper gets five years probation for role in NYC blackmail ring A swindling stripper was sentenced Wednesday to five years probation for her role in drugging gentleman’s club patrons and charging hefty amounts to their credit cards. Samantha Barbash, 43, was part of a major bust in 2014 by the DEA, NYPD and the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan over the Scores and Roadhouse NYC jiggle joint operations in Manhattan and Queens. Barbash and other seductive scam artists spiked drinks with ketamine and molly, prosecutors said. They took four victims for about $200,000, prosecutors said at the time of their arrest. The victims, when they complained about the charges, were blackmailed with incriminating photos and text messages. Barbash previously pleaded guilty to grand larceny, conspiracy and assault. “Samantha was sentenced to 5 years probation. She is relieved to put this case behind her which has been hanging over her head for 2 years,” said her lawyer Bruno Gioffre.
