Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors in southern Colorado have decided against filing criminal charges against two teenagers who recorded cell phone images of themselves having sex and exchanged the images with each other.
Fourth Judicial District Attorney Dan May said thursday that prosecutors didn't believe it was appropriate to file charges against the 17-year-old boy and his 15-year-old girlfriend, both students at Air Academy High School.
May's office had considered charges of sexual exploitation of children, but decided later the pair should be counseled instead of prosecuted.
The pair were issued juvenile summonses in March.
Authorities say there's no law barring teens that age from having a sexual relationship and there's no indication they sent the images to friends.
