Four Spearsville fifth-graders were arrested on obscenity charges Tuesday following reports last week of children having sex in a classroom, Union Sheriff Bob Buckley said.
Two of the fifth-graders are accused of having sex, two are accused of fondling.
An 11-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy, both from Spearsville, and a 12-year-old Junction City boy were released to their parents after each being charged with one count of obscenity, the sheriff said.
An 11-year-old Junction City boy, who was the lookout, was charged with accessory after the fact to obscenity late Tuesday.
An 11-year-old Lillie girl will be charged with obscenity when she returns from an out-of-parish trip, Buckley said.
No charges can be brought against the parents of the five, the sheriff said.
"When the kids are at school, they relinquish all responsibility to the administration. We can't do anything but look into what goes on at home."
The five youths are accused of participating in sexual acts in their classroom March 27 while their teacher was in a morning assembly.
"Our investigation indicated that the incident occurred at approximately 9 a.m. (March 27)," Buckley said. Buckley said his office began its investigation Thursday morning.
The children face a juvenile hearing to determine what punishment, if any, they will receive.
This makes my heart bleed. Our world we live in is so messed up. Why? Why are we letting this happen? Our kids go on the internet and do a search on something innocent and it's inevitable that porn comes up. We have a program on our computer to stop this, but do our kids friends? What about my daughter's boyfriend? What is he seeing on his computer? Our world is SATURATED with sex. TV shows..videos..music..and most of all the internet. We can't blame the kids!! We let them see all this and then punish them for acting out what they see! How does a teenage boy deal with the girls and women dressing like they do on tv and singing about their lovely lady lumps, and dancing, gyrating..having sex. The girls are just imitating what they see on tv. Their role models are Paris Hilton and Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson.
How do we blame the teachers? They can't leave the classroom? At the high school where my daughter goes to school,a girl overdosed on drugs and died. She had her head down on the desk for a while, before a teacher discovered she was unresponsive.
You can imagine how scared the teachers and school administration are to let a kid put his head down,now. My daughter said, they are very very scared, and the students know it. If one student doesn't feel good, the principals are called in and that child is immediately taken from the classroom. Why? Because they don't want to be sued by parents who need somebody to blame.
So, who do we blame?
We are! We are allowing the media to show sexual scenes on the tv. We are not doing anything about the obscene lyrics in the music the kids like to listen too. We are letting pornography on the interent where any kid can have access to it.
Why are we letting this happen?
