CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Youth Crimes investigators paid a visit to Carmel Middle School Tuesday afternoon after learning students may have made and distributed a sex tape.
"I don't know why it should be a secret. I'd rather hear the truth than a rumor," said a parent who didn't want to be identified.
She was upset because the school didn't notify parents about the investigation.
District officials say the video was given to a very small circle and so they didn't feel it necessary to tell everybody.
"I would imagine it's probably a privacy issue for the student that was involved, however, I still feel like parents should have been notified," said parent Toula Gallis.
Police say the incident occurred on May 22 on campus during school hours and was not reported until Saturday.
Sources say two 14-year-olds are involved. Some parents believe they need to be taught a lesson.
"I think they should be suspended at least for a week from school. You've got to make an example of them so it doesn't continue because if you let kids get away with it, it compounds itself and gets worse," said Nick Morgan, a parent.
Police won't say how long their investigation is likely to last or if they will make an arrest. If they do, because the teens are juveniles, they won't go to jail. They will be sent home to their parents.
