Prosecutors in Texas have accused a 17-year-old woman of recruiting her girlfriends to have sex with a 62-year-old Houston-area businessman for money.
Galveston County prosecutor Adam Poole said the League City high school student solicited her "easily manipulated" friends to provide sex for Michael "Money Mike" McIntosh at his home in Friendswood this past summer.
Webster police detective David Nettles said the student would drive the girls to McIntosh's home and receive a percentage of more than $3,600 paid to the girls.

Police said the 17-year-old was a waitress that went to school in Clear Creek Independent School District -- the same district as many of the victims.
