Two students were caught studying anatomy in a Florida high school library…but they weren’t looking at books.
A 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl reportedly engaged in a sex act that took place in the school’s library last week. The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, who are investigating the alleged act, are also saying that it was filmed by a student and shared with classmates.
According to Gawker:
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office reports that two teens — a 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl — had sex in the media center of Fivay High School‘s library around noon on Monday, March 11th.
Another student, a 15-year-old boy, spotted the two students having sex and pulled out his Samsung Galaxy smartphone to record the encounter.
The boy then forwarded the footage on to another student, who may have shared it with others.
Police today arrested the 17-year-old on a charge of lewd or lascivious battery. The 15-year-old girl told officers the sex was consensual, but police say her age still makes the act a crime under Florida law. Neither was aware of the recording.
The 15-year-old boy was also arrested on a charge of creating and transmitting child pornography.
Police threatened that anyone in possession of the film would also be subject to arrest.
“Having this thing go viral would have been horrendous, because what we are doing,” Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco told ABC Action News. “Being proactive, we are going to send a message to anybody involved who committed a criminal act, they are going to be arrested.”
SMH! Looks like there’s some “learning” going on in school after all…just not the type we want to subject our children to. A damn shame.
