Teen girl persuades friends to be prostitutes

(KHOU) — LEAGUE CITY, Texas—Authorities have charged a League City student with soliciting her “easily manipulated” friends into prostitution. The girls performed sexual acts on a 62-year-old business owner from Friendswood, police said.

Webster police charged Chelsey Elizabeth Taylor, 17, with one felony count of compelling prostitution in connection with the three child sexual assault cases against Michael Wayne McIntosh, Galveston County Assistant District Attorney Adam Poole said.

Taylor is accused of driving girls as young as 14 to McIntosh’s Friendswood home in the 600 block of Idlewood Drive between June and October. McIntosh is accused of paying the girls more than $3,600, and Webster police detective David Nettles claims Taylor took a cut of the cash, court documents reveal.
