2 Ohio high school football players charged after sex video

CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Two Ohio high school football players are due in court later this month on charges related to the discovery of a sex video they allegedly made with a 14-year-old girl.

Heather Armstrong, an assistant Pickaway County prosecutor, says the boys were charged late last month after the Circleville High School football coach learned of the video made last year and informed authorities.

Armstrong says the video, which depicts consensual sex, had been deleted from a video camera but was recovered.

The boys, now 17 and 18, are charged as juveniles with one count each of pandering obscenity involving a minor.

Both have entered the juvenile court equivalent of a not-guilty plea. A message was left with the school district, which is conducting its own investigation.
