Teens charged after alleged sex act in classroom recorded

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) - Police say two Connecticut high school students are facing charges after allegedly engaging in a sex act in a classroom that was recorded by another student.

New Britain police say the 16-year-old girl and 17-year-old boy will be summoned to juvenile court to answer to charges of public indecency and risk of injury or impairing the morals of a minor.

Police say the encounter was consensual and both students have been released to their parents. Their names were not released because of their age.

Police say another student took cellphone video of the encounter last Thursday. The video was shared widely and posted on social media.

Police and school officials have not said whether a teacher was in the room at the time, saying the incident is still under investigation.
