 Hennepin County prosecutors say a high school cheerleader admits she talked a fellow student into prostituting herself.
Eighteen-year-old Montia Parker, of Maple Grove, pleaded guilty Friday to three prostitution-related counts.
Parker admitted that last spring, she told a 16-year-old fellow cheerleader at Hopkins High School 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.
Prosecutors say Parker turned down a deal in which she would have received between 45 and 60 months in prison. Instead, attorneys will argue over her sentence at an October hearing.
A statement from prosecutors said that Parker told the court she felt: "Guilty. Regretful. Remorseful,"
