Three teenage boys, students at West Springfield High School, were arrested last month on charges of producing child pornography, according to a report by Fox 5 Friday.
The three students "are accused of getting teenage girls drunk and making sex tapes. The tapes were made sometime 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.
