West Springfield High Students Found Guilty in Sexting Case

Two teens must complete 100 hours of community service; a third will spend three days in the Juvenile Detention Center.

A Fairfax County juvenile court has found two students from West Springfield High School guilty of recording cellphone video of themselves performing sexual acts with local teenage girls.

The students, a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old, were ordered by a judge to complete 100 hours of community service and carry out imposed 30-day suspended sentences, according to the Washington Post

A third teenager, who is 16-years-old, was sentenced last Wednesday to three days in the Juvenile Detention Center.

All three teenagers were found guilty of unlawfully producing videos of non-consensual minors. A total of six videos were created over six months last year without the consent of the teenage girls who were filmed, the Post reported. Two of the teenagers accepted responsibility for the roles they played and accepted responsibility for their actions.

The Post reported Juvenile Court Judge Thomas P. Mann said during sentencing the teenagers treated sex with multiple partners as casually as “going to the 7-Eleven and buying Slurpees” and told the teenagers that he found their actions “dishonest” and “cruel.”

Previously, the teens faced child pornography and distribution charges. Back in April, two of the teenagers pleaded no contest to unlawful filming.
