Welkom - A 16-year-old Virginia schoolgirl and a 42-year-old Welkom man are being charged with sexual offences relating to the manufacturing, distribution and possession of child pornography, after they sent naked pictures as well as videos of sex acts to each other by cellphone.

The parents of the teenager found the pictures on her phone after taking away the mobile to punish her for walking out of church, reported Volksblad.

The girl’s parents, who live on a farm outside Virigina, found the graphic photographs as well as conversations and the number of the man, who owns a club in Welkom.

There were also pictures that she had sent to at least two schoolboys.

The man claims he didn’t know the girl was underage, but said he knew she was still at school.

They had met at a pizza restaurant in Welkom and the man apparently promised to buy her a car and an expensive cellphone. He also bought her airtime for her phone.

The man is being charged with the manufacturing, distribution and possession of child pornography. He was released on bail after his arrest and must appear in court again on 22 May.

The girl is facing charges of manufacturing and distributing child pornography. She must appear in court again on 26 April.
