(CBSNEWS) — MINNEAPOLIS – Montia Parker, a former cheerleader at a suburban Minneapolis high school, pleaded guilty Friday to three prostitution-related counts, admitting she persuaded a younger girl to sell herself for sex, and then pocketed the money.

Hennepin County prosecutors said Parker, 18, turned down a deal in which she could have received anywhere from 45 months to 60 months in prison. Instead, attorneys will argue over her sentence at a hearing in October.

Parker pleaded guilty to one count each of first-degree soliciting a minor to practice prostitution, first-degree sex trafficking of a minor and first-degree promotion of prostitution of a minor.
