(CBS) FAIRFAX, Va. - Two teenage boys were found guilty of felony charges on Thursday for producing cellphone videos of themselves having sex with teen girls who didn't know they were being taped, according to The Washington Post.

A Fairfax County Juvenile Court judge reportedly ordered both teens to complete 100 hours of community service and imposed 30-day suspended sentences. The judge reportedly said that he will consider reducing the charges from felony to misdemeanors if the boys become involve in a project that will better the community.

The Washington Post reports that a third boy, a 16-year-old, was sentenced to spend three days in a Juvenile Detention Center. All three were found guilty of producing cellphone videos of sex with non-consenting minors.  

According to the Post, prosecutors said that during six months in 2012, the three friends, West Springfield High School students, made six videos without the consent of the girls involved, and shared the videos among themselves.

A prosecutor in the case reportedly said that one of the girls in the video suffered emotional distress and "deep hurt."

According to the paper, what the judge found most troubling was that the teen who was "the driving force" in the case treated sex with multiple partners as casual as "going to the 7-eleven and buying Slurpees."

The two teens, who were sentenced to community service, reportedly expressed remorse and took full responsibility for their actions in front of the judge.
