‘A 17-year-old boy who was forced to masturbate in front of police officers after he was accused of taking nude photos of himself and sending them to his 15-year-old girlfriend, won a small victory in court, when he argued that by attempting to force him to recreate the photos, the officers were manufacturing child pornography.
The United States Court of Appeals in the Fourth Circuit ruled in favor of Trey Sims, who is now 20. He was originally accused of sending his girlfriend explicit photographs and videos in 2014. Manasseh City Police Detective David Abbott—who is now deceased—investigated the alleged transmission of child pornography. He asked for, received, and executed a search warrant, which ultimately demanded Sims masturbate for Abbott and two other officers.
As incredible as the story may sound. It did indeed take place. A teenager, a minor, was ordered by police to masturbate in front of them while they videotaped the act so they could obtain forensic evidence to use against Sims in the felony child pornography case against him.
Sims could not achieve an erection in front of the officers and was then threatened with being carried to the hospital and forced to take an erection producing medicine, according to court documents. That threat was not carried out, and Sims accepted a plea bargain for possessing child pornography, although it was his own image he was accused of possessing.’
