A Cincinnati high school senior who secretly filmed himself having sex with a 14-year-old girl and sent the video to classmates will have to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years.
Jeremiah Horton, 18, was sentenced on Thursday at Hamilton County Common Pleas Court in Cincinnati, after pleading guilty last month to a felony child pornography charge.
In addition to registering as a Tier 2 sex offender, Horton was sentenced to six months at the River City Correctional Center, an alternative to prison that focuses on rehabilitating nonviolent offenders, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Horton, who was a senior and played on the football team, was expelled from North College Hill High School.
Horton’s attorney, Carl Lewis, called the incident a ‘youthful indiscretion.’
‘I doubt very seriously you’ll ever see this young man again in the criminal justice system,’ Lewis said.
Personal Thoughts: He looks like a baby. Sad. I agree that this was a youthful indiscretion. I hope so. I know grown men that secretly record women in compromising situations, and I think that is AWFUL. Hopefully, Jeremiah has learned his lesson and never ever does this to any female, whether underage or fully grown.
