School board member to stand trial for pimping

(Associated Press) A Riverside County school board member must stand trial on charges of rape, pimping, pandering and attempted manslaughter.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Mike Rios of the Moreno Valley School Board was ordered to trial in two separate cases Tuesday after preliminary hearings in both.

In one case, Rios is accused of 11 felonies including pimping, pandering and two counts of rape. Two of the victims in the pimping allegations are underage girls.
