FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) -- Three Fairfax County boys have been found guilty on juvenile charges for shooting cellphone videos of themselves and other teens having sex.
The boys, ages 16 and 15, were convicted Thursday by a juvenile judge. The Washington Post reports that two of them pleaded guilty to lesser charges of unlawful filming in exchange for their testimony in the trial of the third teen. That boy was found guilty of two counts of unlawful filming but acquitted of more serious child pornography charges.
The boys are students at West Springfield High School. They were arrested in January on child pornography charges.
One of the teens testified on Thursday that their judgment had been impaired by alcohol and that they considered the videos to be "humorous."
