Two US High Schools are investigating viral videos posted on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube which featured under age students having sex on school grounds.

Students as young as 14 were involved in the clips, constituting child pornography, which have since been removed by the websites involved – albeit after a delay of up to four days. That hasn’t prevented the clips being viewed by millions of people around the world however.

The father of one student, a 14 year old from Frederick Douglass High, Baltimore, told local radio station WJZ: “She was forced to do this. She was bullied, harassed into doing this.”

“The one that videotaped it, I hope he’s incarcerated. I’m hoping he gets some serious time out of this.”

Police are continuing to investigate the cases.
