Boy who recorded student pleasuring himself could spend 5 years in prison

(NYDAILYNEWS) – A student caught on tape pleasuring himself in a school bathroom was left feeling “suicidal,” according to a police report filed in Manatee County, Florida, last week.

Now the 18-year-old western Florida student who reached over a bathroom stall with his camera and recorded the unidentified masturbator finds himself facing a felony charge for distributing material harmful to minors, according to The Smoking Gun. 

That student, Armando Flores, could reportedly be forced to register as a sex offender as well if he’s convicted. He turned 18 last month.

Flores was picked up by police Wednesday morning once they traced the widely distributed sex tape back to him. He reportedly confessed to being the cameraman and distributor of the embarrassing video. The footage is believed to have been shot earlier in the week.
