A Minnesota high school cheerleader now faces sex trafficking charges after allegedly playing madam for a younger student.
According to an Associated Press report, 18-year-old Montia Marie Parker of Maple Grove, Minnesota has been charged with sex trafficking and promoting prostitution. The girl is accused of driving a 16-year-old fellow student to Johns’ houses for oral sex, and is alleged to have received at least $60 from the younger girl.
Parker allegedly posted the younger girl’s pictures to an ad in Backpage.com, a Craigslist-type site well-known for the posting of sex worker ads. Parker is also accused of posing as the younger student’s mother to remove her from school to visit a John.
Parker was caught when the younger girl’s mother went through her daughter’s cell phone, after hearing about the girls unexcused absence at school. According to the school district, Parker has been “permanently removed” from the high school. She is scheduled to face her charges in court on June 12.
