Minn. cheerleader accused of sex trafficking girl 05 Jun 13

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Minnesota high school cheerleader is accused of prostituting a younger student.

Eighteen-year-old Montia Marie Parker faces charges of sex trafficking and promoting prostitution.

Parker was a senior at Hopkins High School. She allegedly set up a Backpage.com ad for a 16-year-old, driving her to an apartment to have oral sex with a man, and taking the $60 the girl made.

Authorities allege Parker and the girl drove to another home the next day, but left after the man refused oral sex.

The Star Tribune reports the girl’s mother called police after reading text messages between her daughter and Parker on the girl’s cellphone.

Parker is scheduled to appear in court next week. Her attorney did not immediately return a phone message Tuesday evening.
