GALVESTON - A business owner who was recently arrested and charged for his alleged role in a high school prostitution ring answered a lawsuit against him.

Recent court records show that Michael Wayne McIntosh, 62, provided an original answer to said lawsuit on Nov. 22, formally denying the allegations fielded by one of the parents of his purported victims.

The unidentified plaintiffs, who launched the litigation early last month, claim McIntosh “physically assaulted, seduced and sexually assaulted” their minor daughter during the summer and as recently as a couple of months ago.

“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 arrested the defendant on grounds he allegedly convinced a local 17-year-old girl to have sex with him for money last June, asserting the encounter in question led to the Clear Springs High School student coaxing her friends into sleeping with McIntosh.

McIntosh, who reportedly earned the moniker “Money Mike,” was alleged to have paid nearly $4,000 to have sex with the teenage girls.

He is represented by attorney Richard M. Grimes of Grimes & Fertitta, P.C. in Houston.

Case No. 13-CV-1426
