A 14-year old girl from Orangeburg County, South Carolina has been charged with criminal sexual misconduct with a minor after she uploaded a video of a toddler performing some undisclosed sexual action on her to Facebook.
According to Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, ‘Multiple law enforcement agencies in the county were swamped with calls Thursday when a video was shared on Facebook. Our officers responded to a concerned citizen who provided information about the juvenile and the incident location. Our investigation indicates the teen recorded the video and sent it to a male friend.’
The 14-year old girl reportedly told cops that she was drunk when she recorded the video, and that she did not remember when she made and uploaded it. She is currently in custody at the Department of Juvenile Justice, Columbia. Two other children who were with her in the house have also been taken into custody.
‘This is a devastating case where an innocent child is being abused and taken advantage of by someone whom the child should have been able to trust,’ Ravenelli said in his report. ‘Parents, we’re calling upon you to police your children. Inspect their phones and social media accounts to see who they are talking to, and what they are sharing. If you are paying for the phone service, you need to be checking behind your kids.’
