Fairfax County teen sentenced to 3 days in sexting case

A 16-year-old West Springfield High School student was sentenced to three days in the juvenile detention center Wednesday for producing sexually explicit cellphone videos of drunken sex acts with other teens, according to a Fairfax County prosecutor.

The teen was found guilty of felony unlawful filming charges in Fairfax County juvenile court in April.

Prosecutors said the teen and his two best friends at West Springfield produced a series of six videos without the consent of the teen girls involved. They shared the videos among themselves.

The videos were produced over six months in 2012 during hangouts in the teens’ basements and in a car.

A juvenile court judge said he might reduce the 16-year-old’s felony convictions to misdemeanors if the teen performs adequate community service.

The two other defendants pleaded no contest to a single charge each of unlawful filming in April in exchange for their testimony against the 16 year old at his trial.

Both have sentencing hearings scheduled for Thursday.

All were initially facing more serious child pornography charges.
