It’s the type of serious story whose creepy titillation factor seems to be the reason the Internet now exists.
A 17-year-old boy in Manassas, Va., received some sexy photos of his 15-year-old girlfriend and he sent her back a video of his aroused self. Now he’s been charged with two felonies (possession of child pornography and manufacturing child pornography) and the police want to take a photo of his erect penis as evidence to match against the video.
The Washington Post reports that if he can’t become erect with a bunch of cops standing around him, they may take him to a hospital so he can receive an erection injection.
From the Washington Post: Carlos Flores Laboy, appointed the teen’s guardian ad litem in the case, said he thought it was just as illegal for the Manassas City police to create their own child pornography as to investigate the teen for it. “They’re using a statute that was designed to protect children from being exploited in a sexual manner,” Flores Laboy said, “to take a picture of this young man in a sexually explicit manner. The irony is incredible.” The guardian added, “As a parent myself, I was floored. It’s child abuse. We’re wasting thousands of dollars and resources and man hours on a sexting case. That’s what we’re doing.”
