Children between the ages of 14 and 16 videotaped themselves having sex using an iPhone. They later distributed the videos to friends. Because the kids are underage, by definition, that is called pandering and because they shared the video, its called distribution. Funny that their lawyers doesn’t seem to understand these legal terms.
From WTOP here:
Lawyers for three Fairfax County high school students arrested for possession and distribution of child pornography are disputing the allegations and say the teens were involved in consensual sex.
Rod Leffler, defense attorney for the youngest West Springfield High School boy charged, says one of the boys merely used his smartphone camera to videotape friends having consensual sex at a party.
“They were all foolish,” Leffler tells WUSA 9.
Leffler says the videos don’t show that the girls were incapacitated or passed out.
“The girls are speaking directly to the cellphone camera,” says Leffler.
The attorneys for the three boys, whose ages range from 14 to 16, say the videos were shared among friends but never uploaded to the Internet.
Leffler basically admitted to the crimes of these teens. Under child porn distribution, the victims don’t have to be incapacitated, and the video doesn’t have to go on the internet in order for sharing to have occurred. And if the kids texted the video to one another, how does Leffler think the data got from one phone to the other without going across the Internet?
Tonight was so freaking surreal, and its because Surreal Life Star Flava Flav and his Hip Hop All Stars were performing at Celebrate Fairfax. I hate Hip Hop. Hated it when I was a kid, and hated it even more tonight when the volume of the bass speakers were rattling my retinas earlier this evening. But we had to stick around to see the fireworks. After riding carnival rides, eating carnival food, and listening to crappy Hip Hop music, we had to deliver fireworks to a cranky child who was up past his bedtime. The fireworks were 15 minutes later than scheduled, but I coulda sworn that the microphone of Flava Flav would have been squelched while families and their kids tried to watch fireworks. Not so, my friends. Not so.
This nigga Flava Flav narrating the fireworks. I cannot stop laughing!

If you have never had your fireworks show ruined by Flava Flav on the Microphone talking about how awesome each bomb burst is and shouting “yeah Boyeee, that’s some Shit!” at the screaming meamies, then count yourself lucky.
Meet Rony N. Herrera Deleon. I’m sure he’s legal in this country because American citizens routinely take jobs as pampleteers for a cleaning service. At the age of 27. No need to deport this one. Anyways, this man convinced a 17 year old girl on MySpace that he loved her and when she finally agreed to go out with him, he got all stabby with her in an Annandale townhouse.
A Fairfax County man has been arrested after picking up a 17-year-old girl he met on MySpace, taking her to a townhouse in Annandale and then stabbing and raping her.
The incident occurred Saturday morning, and police learned of it after the girl had escaped from the man and called for help.
She had become friends with a man on the social networking site MySpace, and that they had planned to go to Tysons Corner for a meal and a movie. The man picked the girl up at her residence in Fairfax County around 11 a.m. Before they went to Tysons, the man told the girl, he had to stop at his “aunt’s house.”
The girl went inside with the man and the attack began. After being sexually molested, the man produced a folding knife and stabbed her numerous times. He then dragged her to a bathroom, then to some stairs and raped her as she tried to fight him off. She said the man tried to clean up the blood she had spilled around the townhouse during the struggle.
On Monday, police arrested Rony N. Herrera Deleon, 27, who lives in the 6700 block of Barrett Road in the Falls Church area. Herrera was hanging cleaning business brochures on front doors when he was picked up.
Herrera was charged with abduction, malicious wounding, rape and inanimate object sexual penetration. He was being held in the Fairfax County jail Tuesday without bond.
If he was working for a cleaning service, let this be a reminder to do background checks on people before you let them in your home to do work.
One of Fairfax County’s real treasures is Margaret Thomas’ Garden. I wrote about it a couple of years ago on this post here. We stopped by today to check out all of her beautiful blooming irises, roses and peonies.
One of the original homes on Lawyers Road, this house along with her garden has become a county and national cultural landscape landmark.
This barn is still in use to house containers and gardening materials. It is a favorite subject of painters and photographers in the area.
