Baltimore City Students’ Cell Phone Sex Tape Scandal


A 14-year old Baltimore City student in a gifted-children program had sex at school, and was filmed without her knowledge. And then someone uploaded the video to the internet, where it (predictably/depressingly) went viral. Since the age of consent in Maryland is 16, there are both statutory rape and child pornography implications. Especially since millions of people have apparently already viewed the clips.

Apparently, filming sex on school property during school hours is a bit of a trend, as three Baltimore teens were charged with indecent exposure and performing “a perverted sex act” earlier this year, when they filmed themselves having sex in a school auditorium.

In this week’s incident, the girl’s father has blamed the social networking site’s lack of privacy and protection oversights. Others have called foul on the schools and the kids themselves.
