GALVESTON - A Friendswood man suspected of having sex with underage girls faces a lawsuit from the parents of one of the alleged victims, recent court documents say.
The plaintiffs sued 62-year-old Michael Wayne McIntosh in Galveston County District Court on Nov. 13.
According to the suit, McIntosh "physically assaulted, seduced and sexually assaulted" the claimants' minor daughter during the summer and as recently as last month.
"The defendant McIntosh intentionally caused physical contact with the plaintiffs' daughter who is a minor while he knew or should reasonably have known that (the girl) was a minor and would find that contact offensive and that as a minor she could not consent to such contact," the original petition explains.
Authorities recently arrested McIntosh, a business owner, for his alleged role in a high school prostitution ring.
Police say the defendant allegedly convinced a local 17-year-old girl to have sex with him for money last June.
The purported encounter led to the girl, a Clear Springs High School student, coaxing her friends into sleeping with McIntosh, according to authorities.
McIntosh, who reportedly earned the moniker "Money Mike," was alleged to have paid nearly $4,000 to have sex with the teenage girls.
The plaintiffs seek unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
They are represented by attorney Alton C. Todd of The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd in Friendswood.
The case has been assigned to Galveston County 122nd District Court Judge John Ellisor.
Case No. 13-CV-1426
