12/28/2017 - A former University of Oklahoma cheerleader, accused of felony prostitution and drug crimes, faces trial. Her alleged pimp, a former University of Oklahoma football player, misses his preliminary hearing in Oklahoma County because he was arrested in California for assault.
JohnTV was the first to break the story of Micah Madison Parker, 23, and Lawrence Charles Moore (aka L.J. Moore), 22, arrested March 29, 2017 on prostitution and drug related charges.
According to court records, Parker was advertising herself as a prostitute on backpage.com. Parker was busted after she negotiated a fee of $200 to have sex with an undercover police officer.
Moore was implicated as Parker's pimp based on social media posts and a recorded jail phone conversation between Parker and Moore.
On April 6, 2017 Parker was criminally charged in Oklahoma County with felony computer crimes, possession of CDS with intent to distribute, possession of criminal proceeds, offering to engage in prostitution, destruction of evidence, possession of CDS without a valid prescription and possession of marijuana.
Moore was charged with pandering (pimping), felony computer crimes, possession of CDS with intent to distribute, possession of criminal proceeds, aiding and abetting prostitution, possession of CDS without a valid prescription and possession of marijuana.
On Dec. 19, 2017 Parker and Moore were scheduled to appear in Judge McCormick's courtroom for their preliminary hearing.
Parker waived her preliminary hearing (meaning she decided she didn't want one) while Moore was a no-show.
However, Moore had an excuse that is right in-line with his total lack of character - he missed his preliminary hearing because he was sitting in a Fresno, CA jail on two 2015 charges for "inflicting corporal injury on spouse or cohabitant." According to online records, one charge has a $75,000 bond and the other was denied bond. Yeah, Moore is a real piece of shit.
As a result of Parker waiving her preliminary hearing, she has been ordered to stand trial. Parker's pretrial conference is set for Feb. 21, 2018. JohnTV predicts Parker's case will eventually end with a plea deal.
At the time of Parker's arrest, she already had a warrant for violating the terms of a two-year deferred sentence after pleading guilty to DUI and driving under suspension in Cleveland County.
Oh, and before you go painting Parker as an "innocent victim of a merciless pimp", just know that several people close to Parker report to JohnTV that she was prostituting herself before she met Moore and, as her social media at the time seemed to support, Parker was a very willing participant in her own 'victimization.'
In fact, as of this posting, Parker's still active Facebook profile is still 'friends' with her pimp Moore - who uses the alias 'Calvin Cambridge' (see image below)... So, good luck with any planned future defense of "but, but, but, I was forced to sell myself by the big scary black man!" Yeah, JohnTV is not buying it.
Moore is most likely facing some sort of revocation for his previous felony conviction in Fresno for assault. So, it may be awhile before he faces a judge again in OKC for his pimping and drug crimes.
