Texas teen accused of prostituting friends

Galveston County, Texas - A Texas teen is accused of recruiting friends as prostitutes.

Prosecutors in Texas have accused a 17-year-old girl of recruiting her girlfriends to have sex with a 62-year-old Houston-area businessman for money.

Galveston County prosecutor, Adam Poole, says the League City High School student solicited her "easily manipulated'' friends to provide sex for Michael Wayne McIntosh, 62, at his home in Friendswood this past summer.

Webster police detective, David Nettles, says the student would drive the girls to McIntosh's home and receive a percentage of more than $3,600 dollars paid to the girls. Police say the friends were as young as 14 years-old.

The alleged teen madam is charged with compelling prostitution. She's free on $40,000 bond. McIntosh is charged with three counts of sexual assault on a child and is free on $120,000 bond.
