Local Boise resident, Michael Wayne Wade, 30, pleaded guilty yesterday in the U.S> District Court of sex trafficking of children.
According to court documents, investigators found that Wade had been pimping out a 16 year old female on the website Backpage.com. The minor admitted that Wade had her go on at least two dates where the girl engaged in commercial sex acts for money.
The minor admitted to police that she participated in prostitution under his leadership as a minor, and that Wade told the teen that she had "mad potential" and knew she was 16 years of age.
Wade is scheduled for sentencing on November 10th. If convicted of these charges, Wade will have to serve at least 10 years in prison and pay a fine up to $250,000.
