The girl circulated the incriminating photo of her friend after getting angry at her, police say.

A 15-year-old Pasco County girl was arrested Monday afternoon for shooting and possessing a photo of another teen girl engaged in oral sex with a teen boy, authorities said.

She was charged with a felony child porn count.

“The two girls were friends, and one of them was dating the guy,” Detective William Lindsey told the Daily News. “They posed for the picture and remained friends for several months.”

At one point, the girls had a falling out. The girl who took the photo started to show it to classmates and distribute it digitally, police said.

“More and more teenagers are sending pictures of themselves and each other in compromising poses,” Officer Melanie Snow said. “We want children and parents to know that this is a felony. It’s not just some silly thing that won’t have a long-term effect on your life.”

One of the girl’s peers, an 18-year-old, is suspected of posting the pornographic image to Twitter. His mother will not turn him in so the Sherriff’s Office will present the case the State Attorney to issue a warrant, authorities say.

A complaint affidavit filed by the Pasco County Sherriff’s Office claims that five witnesses told a deputy that they were shown the “child pornography by the defendant.”

On May 21, an employee at Wiregrass Ranch High School in Wesley Chapel saw the picture of “two juveniles engaged in oral sex” and seized the phone from the girl.

The girl turned 15 last month. She was arrested at her home in Land O’ Lakes.

“Possession of child pornography is [a crime] no matter what age they are,” Lindsey said. “If she had taken a picture of herself in sexual conduct, she could be charged with child pornography.”
