Three teenage boys, students at West Springfield High School, were arrested last month on charges of producing child pornography, according to a report Friday by Fox 5.
The three students "are accused of getting teenage girls drunk and making sex tapes. The tapes were made sometimes after the girls had passed out," the Fox 5 report noted.
The three students, two ages 16 and one age 15, were charged as juveniles with “possession, reproduction, distribution, solicitation and facilitation of child pornography,” Officer Shelley Broderick, a Fairfax County Police spokeswoman, told The Washington Post, which reported the story Saturday.
The ongoing investigation began in late November after a student tipped off a security officer at the school. The boys were arrested Jan. 11.
