HAMILTON, Ohio - An exotic dancer accused of killing a customer by running him over in her SUV outside his home and dragging him for a mile was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in prison. Kristina Hensley, 35, of Higginsport, pleaded guilty in February to involuntary manslaughter in the death last August of Jae Cho. The judge said Hensley didn't just hit Cho, 31, but dragged him to a "horrible death," the Hamilton JournalNews reported. Hensley told police Cho touched her inappropriately after she was called to perform a private show at his home in Monroe, about 25 miles north of Cincinnati.

At home and everywhere she worked - in Bucks County, Philadelphia and New Jersey - sexually explicit phone calls followed. That's why Susan Doyle was glad yesterday when Philadelphia police showed up to arrest the man she says has called and stalked her for three years. It happened moments after he was ordered to stand trial on similar charges in Bucks County. "I'm grateful," said Doyle. "At least, I know the legal system is working. " It appears the legal system has been working for some time in the case of Jeffrey B. Friedman, a Bensalem native who has pleaded guilty to harassing people over the phone six different times since 1982.

Susan Doyle has put down her picket sign and slipped back into her high heels. The exotic dancer went back to work yesterday at a Bucks County "gentlemen's club," two weeks after she was fired for trying to organize the first dancers' union on the East Coast. "I intend on doing my job to the best of my ability," said the 31-year-old single mother. For six years, Doyle has entertained the steelworkers, carpenters, electricians and the other blue-collar workers who frequent Bensalem's Oakford Inn. Seeking job security, cleaner dressing rooms, and better treatment from managers, Doyle and 27 other dancers met this summer and signed a union petition.

Over the objections of prosecutors in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, John A. Denofa, who is charged with the March 29 murder of an exotic dancer was released yesterday from the Burlington County Jail on $500,000 bail. Denofa's lawyer, John L.

" Earlier, Denofa appeared in court in handcuffs at a brief hearing to assure Superior Court Judge Marvin E. Schlosser that he would comply with the bail terms.

Jo Ann Zener disapproved of her son-in-law's drinking, and it troubled her that he had been going to strip clubs since marrying her daughter about 15 years ago. She grew to accept his weekly trips, though, because John Denofa was "a good fellow" who earned good money and took good care of his wife, her daughter Lisa. "That was his time of relaxation with people he knew who accepted his drinking and accepted him," Zener testified on cross-examination yesterday at Denofa's murder trial in Superior Court.

Her show name was Summer, but she was a woman for all seasons. To Craig Rabinowitz, a Main Line husband and father accused in his wife's murder last week, the flaxen-haired beauty was the only exotic dancer he had eyes for at the upscale Delilah's Den, a topless "gentleman's club" on Spring Garden Street near the waterfront. Summer was his private dancer, and his obsession. And in return for her attentions in a tucked-away corner of the club's private Champagne Court, he lavished her with tips that in a few afternoons a week piled $1,000 to $3,000 onto his already overloaded credit cards and mounds of debt.

Benefits? Yes, a 15-year study of exotic-dance clubs nationwide (published by the University of Texas Press) challenges what is said in the Daily News article "Dirty Dancing: Strippers bring prostitution, violence, cops say. " I began my research with many common misconceptions. In strip clubs I discovered a form of dance, art and theater that communicates within its own aesthetic. Fantasy is the touchstone. I interviewed more than 1,000 dancers, managers, owners, bartenders, disc jockeys, house mothers and house dads, and patrons in 141 clubs.

One by one, the five women waiting for buttock-enhancement injections went into the room with Padge Victoria Windslowe, the so-called "Black Madam" charged with performing the illegal procedures as an underground business. After five to 10 minutes, each woman returned with cotton balls Krazy-Glued to the injection site on her instantly larger rear end.

Wednesday's preliminary hearing for the Black Madam featured testimony about "butt pumping parties" and a woman who goes by the name of "Back Shots. " But perhaps the most bizarre moment came when Black Madam's attorney argued that one reason his client isn't a flight risk is that she always wears 4-inch heels. Judge Jacquelyn Frazier-Lyde didn't buy the argument. She held the case for trial and refused to reduce the $750,000 bail for Black Madam, a transgender gothic hip-hop artist whose real name is Padge Victoria Windslowe.

State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo had a private detective snoop into Ed Rendell, a long string of political enemies, his own son, an ex-girlfriend, a former wife - and even two topless dancers, the private eye said yesterday. The detective, Frank D. Wallace, told jurors in Fumo's trial on federal corruption: "The majority of work I did was political and personal. " Wallace said this was so even though Fumo was paying him - with public money - as much as $45,000 a year under a contract that called for legislative investigations.

He was a Jersey steelworker with a million dollars from a legal settlement. She was an exotic dancer with at least four fiances - one of whom, police said, she wanted dead. Their yearlong engagement ended poorly. He wound up broke, the prime suspect in the murder of a man in the Alaskan wilderness. She left him in New Orleans for an Army doctor, whom she later married. Last week, a decade after the breakup, John T. Carlin III and Mechele Hughes were back together. Both were charged in the 1994 murder of Kent J. Leppink, who owned a fishing business in Anchorage and was deeply in love with Hughes.
