Students disciplined for engaging in sex act at an Atlanta middle school

ATLANTA (CBS46) — Two metro Atlanta middle school students face disciplinary action for their involvement in a sex incident on school grounds.

Most parents, like Patrisha Mongeon, were disturbed to learn that the students engaged in a sex act and recorded it.

“It’s really scary. My daughter goes here and she’s at the age where these things start happening. I was hoping to wait a little longer before these types of explicit conversations were had in my household,” Mongeon said.

A source tells CBS46 that the two students performed a sex act in a bathroom during school hours. The school district sent the following statement.

“Atlanta Public Schools became aware recently of a video showing two Howard Middle School students engaged in a consensual sex act on school grounds. The students have been disciplined in accordance with the district’s code of conduct.”

“Well, I think it’s irresponsible from the people that are supposed to supervise these kids and where their location is at all times,” Parent Dan Villouta said.

APS went on to say, “Additionally, students have been warned that any sharing of the video will result in harsh disciplinary action as well. APS will continue to provide safe and secure learning and working environments for its students and staff.

“It can derail their future, just by talking about it and just by sharing it,” Mongeon said. “We definitely will be having a conversation later. It’s just the on-going struggle we have with our children as parents to help them stay as innocent as possible.”

An APS spokesperson said there is no indication that the video has been shared. Sharing the video would in essence be sharing child pornography.

So glad there’s a registry that protects kids from doing things like this.

I’m not sure what you mean by this. ^^^

To me, there’s nothing noteworthy, commendable and honorable about a registry that callously punishes innocent middle-school students for doing what they’re biologically predisposed to do. Individual school-wide efforts to curtail sending the video as means of bullying is respectable. Beyond that, I don’t understand how the registry (which you brought up) protects children.

Per its falsely reputation to prevent bullying, the registry became the bully.

Will their future DLs be marked possibly?

Wait…. When did a sex act by anyone under the age of consent become “consensual”? Something smells fishy in Seattle. Put these two hooligans on the list they are both guilty of statutory rape and compelling a sex act by a minor.

They need to stamp “Sex offender” on there student ID so the other students can

shame and banish them. This is “make america great again”.

I’m glad the both of you (BA and KMinSoCal) are being nothing more than merely sarcastic.

And I agree with you. =)

“An APS spokesperson said there is no indication that the video has been shared. Sharing the video would in essence be sharing child pornography.”

No, not “in essence,” **IS.** It’s called distribution and since it more likely than not would be over the Internet, there’s nothing but prosecutorial discretion as to whether it’s federal charges.

BTW, who gave prosecutors discretion which laws are allowed to be broken and by whom and which are not?

Just the taping of the sex act is in itself a federal crime. Manufacturing Child Pornography. They should be charged and listed for the world to see. No more of this prosecutorial discretion.

@ AJ: And them making the video is, unequivocally, “production of child pornography”.

I hope information of this incident (without names, of course) gets broadcast widely among all K-12 schools so kids can be warned of the very possible consequences.

Sadly, each child involved could easily be convicted registered as sex offenders. 😩
(Can you even imagine how mandated “S.O. treatment/therapy” would permanently scar these kids??😩)
And because their offenses involved a minor (including themselves), the could each be doomed to having an IML unique identifier passport.😩

Sadly my backside. They must be charged and convicted otherwise these laws are hypocritical and tyrannical not just because of what we have to go through, but because guaranteed this will become a race issue very quickly as DAs use their Prosecutorial Discretion to decide which group(s) get no punishment because they are the “right” type and which get the book and the anchor thrown at them for being that “other” group. Not charging them would be a clear case of dis-separate impact as well as a clear violation of equal protections.

Lucky for these kids their only in middle school and not high school.
Riverside County District Attorney Deena Ramirez Bennett put me on the registry for life, when I was in high school.
If one of her son’s or daughters got caught up in a situation that landed them on the registry for life, I wonder how she would feel about putting teenagers on the registry for dating their peers

“Well, I think it’s irresponsible from the people that are supposed to supervise these kids and where their location is at all times,” Parent Dan Villouta said.
And here we have a parent passing responsibility from themselves for teaching their kids responsible actions and their kids for knowing basic common sense.
Will teachers now be put on the registry for being on the same campus as promiscuous children?

No one was shot, stabbed, bullied, or otherwise physically assaulted. A consensual sex act is hardly the most disturbing thing that has happened in a school bathroom. Filming the act was not smart, but still.

It cannot by law be consensual. Neither child has reached the age of consent if they are in middle school. At the very least they are guilty of Statutory Rape, Compelling a Sex Act by a Minor, Production of Child Pornography. Public Indecency. The last one is iffy since they did it in the bathroom, but school bathrooms are not consider private.

Middle school implies ages around 11-13. We can only hope that the District Attorney and the U.S. Attorney are not having a slow week. The kids might escape prosecution, but I would use the threat to scare the hell out of them. Forcing kids that age through the criminal justice system would be a real tragedy. However moral panic being what it is, I suspect they will at least be subjected to some form of sex offender-ish therapy.
