Former Hopkins cheerleader sentenced to 3 years

Author:

The 18-year-old accused of prostituting her Hopkins High School cheerleading squad mate was sentenced to three years in prison on Friday, the Star Tribune reports.

Montia Marie Parker in August had pleaded guilty to soliciting a minor to practice prostitution, first-degree sex trafficking of a minor and first-degree promotion of prostituting a minor.

She had turned down an initial plea deal that would have sent her to prison for up to five years.

Parker admitted that last spring she told a 16-year-old fellow cheerleader, a girl with learning disabilities, about how the girl could earn money through prostitution. Parker admitted she placed an ad for the girl online, then took her to an apartment where the girl was paid for oral sex. The girl gave $60 to Parker, who kept it, investigators said.
