Authorities investigating videotaped sex act at Fivay High School

HUDSON — The principal of Fivay High School made a recorded call to parents on Friday about a videotaped sex act in the school's media room, according to assistant superintendent Ray Gadd.

The incident in question involves three students — two involved in the sex act, and one who recorded the incident and distributed it. School district officials would not say whether the sex act was consensual.

Gadd said he believes the student who made the recording has been suspended, and that the act happened either Tuesday or Wednesday during school hours. In an automated call to Fivay parents, principal Angie Stone stressed that possession of the recording is a felony under Florida law, due to the ages of the students involved.

The recording is as follows:

"Hello, this is Angie Stone, principal of Fivay High School. I'm calling regarding a very disturbing situation that took place this week. Law enforcement is investigating the videotaping of an inappropriate act between two students. We have learned that a student recorded this and shared it with others. That is a violation of the student code of conduct, and a felony under Florida law — so violators are subject to legal consequences. Anyone involved will face disciplinary consequences at school as well. We are calling all parents so you can talk to your student about whether he or she has received a copy. Mere possession of this content is a felony so it should be deleted and not further distributed. This is an ongoing investigation, so additional information is not yet available. I will update you on additional elements when appropriate. Thank you."

Pasco County Sheriff's Office spokesman Doug Tobin said the incident is an ongoing criminal investigation and deputies are working closely with the Pasco County School District and Fivay High School staff.

"Earlier today we worked with the school district to release a statement to make parents aware of the situation so they can talk to their children about the incident," Tobin said Friday.

On Tuesday, several people on Twitter made references to the incident.

"The fivay porno challenge. Its official," one person tweeted. Other users used profanity to describe the act, and many expressed an interest to know what was happening.

"this guy will remain a legend at Fivay for years to come," another user tweeted.
