— A Raleigh teenager faces several counts of sexual exploitation of a minor stemming from a recorded sexual encounter with a 14-year-old.

Bruce Edward Rogers, 17, of 6705 Louisburg Road, was charged Thursday with one count each of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

An arrest warrant accuses Rogers of having sex with the other teen last month and then sending video he recorded with his cellphone to another person.

Rogers was given a $50,000 bond and was scheduled to make his first court appearance Friday.

    Well, they are both under age, so that shouldn't be the issue. The issue I would think is the production and distribution of what can be called child pornography. Relationships between 17-14, 15-18 yr olds isn't anything new.
