Five fifth grade students were charged with obscenity after allegedly having sex in an unattended classroom. Two 11-year-old girls, a 12-year-old boy, and a 13-year-old boy were charged with obscenity, a felony. An 11-year-old boy was posted as a lookout at the door to watch for teachers. The lookout has been charged as an accessory.

Local authorities said the incident occurred on March 27th, with 10 other students in the classroom at the time the incident took place. Local sherriff Bob Buckley told the Associated Press that "...after 44 years of work, nothing shocks me. But this comes pretty close."

The students were alone for about 15 minutes. Authorities did not learn of the incident until a day later, on March 28th. A student, who asked to remain anonymous, told a high school student, who reported it to a teacher, who subsequently told the local officials.
