Cheerleading captain gets three years for prostituting squad member

Montia Parker, a former cheerleading captain from a suburban Minneapolis high school, was sentenced to three years in prison today for prostituting a younger squad member.

Parker, 18, will spend at least two of the three years behind bars before she's eligible for release, said Chuck Laszewski, spokesman for the Hennepin County prosecutor. If she has good behavior, she will serve the remain third of her sentence on probation, he said.

"After a fairly lengthy hearing, the judge sentenced her to 36 months in prison," Laszewski said.

When Parker was interviewed by police on April 4, she admitted she knew the victim from cheerleading, created a Backpage.com ad for her, and drove her to perform sex acts on two separate occasions, for which she pocketed the payment, according to the charging affidavit.

"She really didn't deny any of the allegations," Raquet said.

Parker, of Maple Grove, Minn., allegedly contacted the fellow cheerleader after she overheard her talking with girls on the team about trying to make money, the complaint stated.

Parker, who attended Hopkins High School in Minnetonka, Minn., sent texts to her sophomore teammate asking if she would be willing to have sex for money. The victim told Parker that she'd be willing to give men oral sex for money, according to the complaint.

Parker allegedly advised the teen to take photos of herself that were "not too nasty but kinda cute" and to send them to her. Parker told the girl to wear "different outfits" and "show a little skin," the complaint stated.

Using the photos the victim sent her, Parker created an ad for the 16-year-old on Backpage.com, according to the complaint.

On March 5, Parker took the victim out of school and drove her, along with two other passengers, to an apartment building in Crystal, Minn., where she told the sophomore she was to go to an apartment and give oral sex to the man who was waiting inside, the court document stated.

"You're up!" Parker allegedly said to the teen.

When the girl returned to the car, she handed Parker the $60 she had made, the complaint stated. Parker then took the cash and drove to a bank where she deposited the money. She did not give any of the money to the victim, according to the allegation.

Parker also took the victim out of school on March 6, calling into the school and pretending to be her mother, the complaint stated. She then drove her to an apartment in Brooklyn Park, Minn., and told her that the customer wanted to have vaginal sex with her, but the girl told Parker she did not want to, the complaint stated.

"You'll be fine," Parker allegedly said. "I didn't drive up here for nothing, and eventually you will need to have sex."

While the victim went into the apartment and allegedly offered oral sex instead of vaginal sex, the client declined, the complaint stated. The girl then left the apartment and Parker drove her back to school.

When the girl's mother found out that she had an unexcused absence from school on March 5, she checked the teen's cell phone, the complaint stated. When she saw text messages between Parker and her daughter revealing that Parker convinced the teen to prostitute herself, she contacted the police.

Authorities uncovered the Backpage.com ad featuring the teen in the pictures she had sent to Parker, as well as Parker's contact information on the page, the complaint stated.
