 Democratic Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein says he's willing to erase convictions of those prosecuted under a state law prohibiting strip club employees from touching customers. 

Klein made the offer this week after announcing last month the city would no longer file such cases and dismissed charges against porn star Stormy Daniels and two Ohio women. Klein has since dismissed the pending cases of eight other women charged with touching. Daniels was arrested after her appearance at a Columbus strip club in mid-July. She has achieved worldwide fame from her claim of having sex with Donald Trump in 2006. Klein says women previously convicted under the no-touching law may file motions to withdraw their guilty pleas.
