MISSOULA - The mother of a University of Montana student says Terrance Edwards forced her daughter into prostitution and she doesn't want him out in the community.
Edwards said he never forced the girl to do anything and that he's a victim of a bad mother-daughter relationship.
The judge in the case said the daughter was not cooperative with the investigation and as a result, gave Edwards a five-year probationary sentence.
Prosecutors state in court documents that Edwards met his girlfriend at a bar when he moved to Missoula. He and his girlfriend then agreed he'd be her pimp so the pair could make some money.
But after the first meeting with a client, prosecutors say that the woman decided she wasn't comfortable with the deal, but Edwards refused to let her stop.
Edward's is charged with felony promotion of prostitution. His attorney said her client is not a registered sex offender and that's why that charge was dropped.
