OKLAHOMA CITY — A former University of Oklahoma football player has been charged with pimping out an ex-cheerleader who is the daughter the team’s cheer coach, police said.
Undercover cops busted former cheerleader Micah Parker, 23, on March 30 after arranging online to meet her at an Oklahoma City motel to have sex for $200, KOCO-TV reported.
They say Parker attempted to throw several cell phones down the toilet as officers entered the room. They also found burnt marijuana and pharmaceutical drugs.
After her arrest, police say they busted 22-year-old Lawrence “LJ” Moore when he came to the hotel to pick up her car. A search of social media and jailhouse phone conversations between the two suggested that Moore was working as Parker’s pimp, police said.
Moore, who hails from California, had signed on to join the Oklahoma team as a cornerback in 2013 but played in only two games before leaving the team. Parker had been a cheerleader at the time Moore was on the team. JohnTV — an Oklahoma media outlet that focuses on vice crime — reported that Parker’s mother had once been the team’s cheerleading coach.
Parker was charged with destruction of evidence, offering to engage in an act of prostitution, and two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Moore, who has felony assault arrests in California, was hit with charges of aiding and abetting prostitution, pandering, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and possession of marijuana.
