DA: Pennsylvania middle school sex tape may be case on incest

January 5th, 2015 by Staff

The tape was confiscated from students at Franklin D. Roosevelt Middle School.


(ABC7.com) BRISTOL TOWNSHIP, Pa. – Police are investigating an apparent sex tape involving juveniles that has been circulating among middle school students in Bristol Township, Pennsylvania. 

Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler told WPVI-TV, the ABC News affiliate in Philadelphia, that the video depicts middle school-aged children having what appears to be sex and says it may be a case of incest. 

Investigators say the video was quickly shared among Franklin D. Roosevelt Middle School students Tuesday night. Students were caught watching the video on cellphones during a concert held at the school. 

“The safety and well being of the Bristol Township School District students is always our top priority, that’s why we are so disturbed by a situation that was brought to our attention yesterday,” Superintendent Sam Lee said. 

The District Attorney says the two caught engaged in the sex act may have been recorded without their knowledge. 

Sources say one of the two depicted in the video goes to Roosevelt. 

Bristol Township Police Chief Lt. John Godzieba says it didn’t appear the video was shot on school property.

Police have confiscated at least 10 cellphones and are now beginning to conduct interviews.

“This might take a little while. It’s not going to be done overnight. There’s a lot that’s involved in this. We want to make sure we do a complete and thorough investigation on this,” Bristol Police Lt. Terry Hughes said. 

A recently passed law makes it illegal for anyone under 18 to distribute nude images even if it’s between two consenting minors. Both the person sending and receiving such images can be charged. 

A letter was sent home to parents informing them of the incident. 

“It’s awful. It’s really very scary,” said parent Colleen Costello. “Kids that young shouldn’t even be thinking about things like that today.” 

“We’ve taken initiative and effort to warn our students of the dangers of the situations like this we are encountering currently,” Lee said. 

Investigators are still trying to determine the origin of the video.
