The Greenwood County Sheriff's Office is investigating charges that a mentally handicapped Greenwood teen was coerced into sex acts on a Greenwood County School District 50 school bus earlier this month.
The 17-year-old victim's mother met deputies at the Greenwood Police Department on Sunday night to report the incident. According to a Greenwood County incident report, the mother got a message on Facebook that showed her daughter appearing to engage in oral sex. The video was uploaded about 10:50 a.m. Sunday.
Deputies talked to the victim, who said three boys approached her on the school bus Sept. 6 and asked her to perform a sex act on them. She indicated she did engage in the sex act with one of the suspects. The victim told officers she did not know the boy's name, but indicated he attends Northside Middle School. When asked why she did it, the victim told officers, "So they will be my friends."
District 50 spokesmen were not immediately available for comment Friday.
