    VA - High School Students Accused in Child Exploitation Ring

    3 West Springfield High School students arrested, accused of running child exploitation ring



    "The boys are accused of getting teenage girls drunk and making sex tapes. The tapes were made sometimes after the girls had passed out.

    The accused teenagers were arrested at West Springfield High School on January 11. One of them is 15 years old. The other two are 16 years old.

    Fairfax County police say the accused students victimized six local teenage high school girls in an online porn distribution ring. Some of the girls attended West Springfield High School."

    "The teenage boys are charged with possession, reproduction, distribution, solicitation and facilitation of child pornography."

    Sad...Just found out that 2 of the boys went to the school my mom taught at and were honor students.

    Pornography charges for Fairfax County (Va.) students

    This is in my neck of the woods. And these are known as decent high schools. I think such behavior is becoming more and more widespread, unfortunately.

    Police continue to investigate alleged porn production involving Fairfax students

    Fairfax County police are continuing to investigate allegations that three West Springfield High School students filmed themselves engaged in drunken sex acts with at least six juvenile girls.

    The three boys — two 16-year-olds and a 15-year-old — were arrested at school on Jan. 11, according to police and school officials. They have been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

    The boys, who police have not identified publicly because they are juveniles, allegedly hosted parties with girls who were students at West Springfield, Robinson Secondary and Lake Braddock Secondary schools.....

    This is highly reminiscent of a decades old case The Lost Children of Rockdale County. Notably, participation seemed quite often driven by peer pressure.

    I saw The Lost Children of Rockdale County. Very disturbing. It was filmed not too long after Columbine Massacre and Heritage Shooting, which happened a month after Columbine.

    We're house shopping, and this high school pyramid is an area we are looking at, based on the good reviews. Just goes to show how widespread such things are these days.

    Belimom, it is overall a very nice area, and the area that at least 2 of the boys live in is one of the nicest that feeds into this high school. Peer pressure is so strong these days and social media is prevalent that I think these kids are just not thinking about the repercussions of their actions. It scares me to think of what things are going to be like when my kindergartener and preschooler are high school age. This is my high school and it is hard to imagine this happening there...now granted, I graduated a quarter of a decade ago from there, but I don't feel completely removed from this area and still live within 10 minutes.

    BTW, if you'd like any info on the area, feel free to ask.

    I question the prudence of the child pornography charges. Charges which can result in these kids becoming RSOs.

    I agree. Moreover, this is, in part, why we have age of consent laws. That is, a child is not in a position to consent to have sex with an adult bc they aren't yet fully cognizant of the repercussions. There are of course, other issues involved wrt AoC laws, such as coercion, power differentials, etc.

    Thanks - I may do that. We're only about 15 minutes away (without traffic). We have some good friends over that way, a block or two from WS High School. We really love the area we're at, though... But thanks for the offer - I'll keep it in mind.

    Can a 'child' be charged with making 'child pornography'? I guess so... They are all minors. The larger issue for me, though, is that reportedly one of the girls was passed out. That's an entirely different story. I think LE is looking into it and may up the charges to rape if true.
