Montia Marie Parker, an 18-year-old Minnesota high school cheerleader, is accused of prostituting out a 16-year-old teammate described as cognitively delayed through online sex advertisements.

Parker, a senior at Hopkins High School in Minnetonka, Minn., allegedly created an ad offering the 16-year-old for sex on Backpage.com.

On Mar. 5, Parker reportedly drove the minor to the apartment of a man who had responded to the ad where the cognitively delayed youth performed oral sex on the man for $60.

The $60 was allegedly pocketed by Parker immediately after the sex act.

The following day, Parker reportedly drove the 16-year-old to another man's apartment where she was pressured to have intercourse. After the 16-year-old refused, the man reportedly turned down an offer of oral sex and the girls drove back to Hopkins High School.

According to authorities, Parker told the victim after she refused to have sex with the second man that she would eventually have to have intercourse at some point.

"You'll be fine – I didn't drive up here for nothing, and eventually you will need to have sex," Parker told the girl, according to the complaint.

The perverse arrangement reportedly began after the 16-year-old mentioned to her peers that she was looking for ways to make some money. Upon hearing this, Parker then sent texts and Facebook messages to the younger classmate informing her that she could trade sex for money and all she would have to do was email her a few photos of herself to begin the process, the charges allege.

Parker allegedly proceeded to post those images on Backpage.com, where she listed her phone number for the contact information, Fox News reported.

At one point, the complaint alleges that Parker even called the school posing as the girl's mother in order to get her excused from her classes so that she could drive her to the man's apartment in early March.

Shortly after the two encounters, the FBI became aware of the alleged prostitution and met with the alleged victim and her mother, MyFoxTwinCities.com reports.

The sophomore's mother had apparently become suspicious when her daughter's behavior changed shortly after the initial encounter and she learned of the unexcused absence from school, Fox News reported.

The mother told investigators that due to her daughter's developmental cognitive delay, the 16-year-old works with a school social worker.

According to the complaint, Parker confessed to authorities that she had created the ad, from which she claimed to have received "a lot of calls."

Parker, who faces felony charges of sex trafficking and promoting prostitution for the acts, is currently free on a $50,000 bond. She has been permanently removed from campus the school district confimed in a statement.
