    On March 27, 2017, the mother of a female under the age of 14 contacted HCSO to report her daughter was secretly recorded in a sexual act and the explicit video was disseminated to fellow Burn's Middle School students via cell phones and social media.

    HCSO detectives immediately initiated a criminal investigation that resulted in the arrest of the 4 juveniles listed above.  The following information is a summary of the investigation;

    On March 18, 2017, at approximately 5 pm, the victim performed a sexual act on Brennon Miller while inside an enclosed dressing room at the JCPenny's at 331 Brandon Town Center.  During the sex act, Brennon recorded the encounter without the knowledge of the victim via his cell phone.

    Between the dates of March 18, 2017 and March 26, 2017, Brennon transmitted the video to Myshawn Crumpton via social media chat for the purpose of disseminating through mass media.  Myshawn created an account on Instagram and posted the video.  Nia Melton and Briza Rodriguez posted the video to their personal instagram accounts.  During the course of the investigation it was learned that Myshawn was still in possession of the child pornography video.

    All four juveniles have been arrested and booked into Hillsborough County's Juvenile Assessment Center.

    The investigation continues.
