Cheerleader Charged With Sex Trafficking, Prostitution

High-schooler allegedly persuaded others students to go into prostitution.

Montia Marie Parker, of Maple Grove, Minnesota, a former senior at Hopkins High School, has been charged with sex trafficking and promoting prostitution. 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, effectively acting as her “stand-in pimp.” The victim’s mother reportedly called the police after seeing text messages from Parker. Parker reportedly confessed to police that she created the ad and said she had received “a lot of calls” from it. She is currently free on $50,000 bond.
