DES MOINES, Wash. -- Police are investigating an incident in which Mount Rainier High School students were reportedly filmed by their classmates having sex at a party.

Detectives said a 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl consented to being filmed at an off-campus party last Friday. The lewd video, which was captured by cell phones, quickly spread among students.

School officials first contacted police on Tuesday, prompting them to launch an investigation. Detectives have confiscated three cell phones, and have reviewed the contents of one, which did contain the sexual footage, officials said. On Wednesday night, they were still awaiting search warrants to examine the other two.

Under state law, sharing pornographic images of minors is a felony, and violators could face prison time.

"I don't think they would do it if they knew the consequences," said junior Alexis Gregersen. "I think that they should be educated on it, and if they knew, they probably wouldn't have done it."

After the investigation is complete, police will refer the case to the King County Prosecutor's Office to determine whether child pornography charges are warranted.
